Mytime has a wonderful variety of opportunities for carers to enjoy a much-needed break. The arrangement of the break is made entirely by the mytime team, therefore there is no pressure on the carer to plan their break.
I can’t believe the difference that one night away has made. I didn’t realise how exhausted I was. I have come home reenergised and ready to face again the challenges that being an unpaid carer can bring. I feel like me again. – Claire
An overnight break gives the carer the opportunity to relax and unwind. We have a wonderful group of hotels and apartments, many offering breakfast to make the experience that little extra bit special.
It was wonderful to spend precious time with my daughter away from the caring role. It was a perfect couple of hours away and it was lovely to have something just for me to look forward to. It felt really special. – Eileen
What could be more special than an afternoon tea for two? We are aware that some carers are unable to take advantage of an overnight stay due to the demands of their caring role, so an afternoon tea for two giving the carer the opportunity to connect with friends or family members is a real treat!
Juggling caring for our parents and looking after our young family, we often feel guilty that the kids are missing out on time with us so it was great to spend time together as a family and to see the kids being kids and laughing together at the show. We couldn’t afford to do this without mytime. We have made some lovely memories – Tom and Sarah
Time spent at the theatre or at a concert gives the carer a chance to sit back and enjoy some live entertainment, with a friend, family young or old, or with other carers.
I was able to take my son out for tea, I honestly can’t remember the last time we did something like that. We really enjoyed a relaxing evening away from home – Omar
We are aware that some carers are unable to take advantage of an overnight stay due to the demands of their caring role, so a meal for two giving the carer the opportunity to connect with friends or family members is a real treat! No cooking and no washing up!
Just wow! I floated out of the spa, it was incredible. To have an hour to myself, let alone being pampered is unheard of. I now know I need to find the time to look after me – Rajni
Health & Relaxation
We have a variety of health and relaxation opportunities available to enable carers to be pampered and unwind in a calming environment. This could be a facial, a massage, reflexology, alternative therapies.
I’m not exaggerating when I say that this was life changing. I stepped out of my comfort zone and I am so proud of myself. I had lost sight of myself caring for my mum. I have made friends for life with other carers on the trip’- Brenda
This could be tickets to football or rugby matches, to the races or other sporting events. Cares registered with mytime also have the opportunity to spend a few days away with other on an activity break, canoeing, mountain climbing, country walks and much more!
I didn’t realise how isolated I had become due to my caring role. I was nervous when I first arrived but the mytime team put me at ease and were really welcoming. I met other carers and I have now made some great friends. My confidence has come back! – Tony
Getting together with a group of carers is a great way to meet others who may face similar challenges. Thanks to our amazing contributors, we arrange events which are an opportunity for carers to get together. Previously we have held events such as afternoon tea, bus tour into North Wales, drinks masterclass, history tour, meals out, barista training, theatre trips, and much more. Carers arrive as strangers and leave as friends.

Can Your Business Contribute To Mytime?
Mytime is deliciously simple. It connects carers who could beneﬁt from a much-needed break from the demands of their caring roles, with business and organisations who kindly donate complimentary opportunities to enable the carer to access that much needed break. However, demand for breaks exceeds supply and we need your help.
