The clinical commissioning groups minimum allocation to the Better Care Fund (BCF) in 2017-18 includes £130 million of funds for the provision of carers’ breaks.

Local BCF plans set out the level of resource that will be dedicated to carer-specific support, including carers’ breaks, and identify how the chosen methods for supporting carers will help to meet key outcomes. The exact breakdown on spend for carers breaks is not collected centrally.
