Dundee Carers Centre’s partnership with Respitality Scotland was given a boost by Maryculter House Hotel. Supported by the hospitality industry and Scottish Government, Respitality (Respite and Hospitality) connects local carers’ centres with hospitality providers who gift a short break or experience to unpaid carers.
As part of this project, Maryculter House Hotel has shown their support for unpaid carers by gifting a one night stay for 2 carers including dinner and breakfast.
Rebecca Bramhall of Maryculter House Hotel, who gifted the break said, “As a company, we wanted to help carers and this provides an opportunity to do just that as well as to show off our hotel and restaurant to new visitors.”
It is hoped that this will encourage more businesses to join Respitality to give carers a break with Scottish hospitality.
Ian Boyle – Short Breaks Coordinator at Dundee Carers Centre said: “We are proud to be involved in Respitality and giving unpaid carers a break and would encourage any business who would like to get involved to contact Dundee Carers Centre. The gift can be from an overnight stay, to a cut and colour -the gift is entirely up to the business.
