Carers Trust

Make sure you claim any benefits and credits that you, and the person you care for, are entitled to. Some carers can claim Carer's Allowance but there are other benefits that you may be able to get. There are benefits just for carers, some for people with a disability, and some to help you if you have a low income.

Find support to keep you, and the person you care for, healthy. Includes information on equipment and adaptations, relationships and tackling loneliness.

It's is important to take a break sometimes. Find out more about respite care, sitting and befriending services and holidays.

Whether you are doing some shopping, going to a hospital appointment or having a day out there is lots of support to help you, and the person you care for, get about.

Are you caring for someone with learning difficulties, mental ill health, alcohol or substance misuse or dementia?
