The service is for eligible (as assessed by the Council) Carers who look after a friend or relative who has an illness or disability and who are unable to leave the cared for person. The Council wishes to refresh the framework to allow new service providers to join who can offer flexible respite care, in which the cared-for person can be supported at home or in the community in order to provide a break for the Carer.

The aim of the service is to make a positive difference to the lives of carers of adults in Leicestershire, and to sustain carers who have complex caring responsibilities.
