Financial Wellbeing:

We recognise the benefits system can be difficult to navigate, and without help, it can be difficult to know what Carers entitlements are.

As part of our service Carer Support Workers are available to provide information, advice and guidance to help you understand what you and the person you care for may be entitled to. We can also provide support to manage appeals.

Did you know?

Carers Trust report that over one third of Carers feel they do not want to wake up in the morning, due to the strain of their financial situation.

Nearly 3 out of 5 said that they had given up paid work to look after a sick or disabled relative.

More than half of those who did still work earned less than £10,000.

More than 1 in three Carers when asked said they were fearful of the future, felt at risk of losing their home and more than half had borrowed money because of their caring role.
