The Better Breaks programme awarded its first grants in March 2012. 51 grants, totalling £1,121,602 were distributed to projects across Scotland so that these projects could deliver quality short breaks for children and young people with disabilities which would be tailored to their needs whilst giving their families a break from caring.
The evaluation was based on information provided by the funded projects through their applications, their End of Grant reports, any supporting materials provided, selected telephone calls and review of the Shared Stories films.

Food banks have been criticised for tackling the symptoms of poverty rather than addressing the causes - but often they do more than supplying essential nutrition to those in crisis. Many are now aiming to offer all-round support to address the underlying problems that leave people unable to support themselves.
