Carers support grant for carers in Wales

Carers Trust Wales is delighted to be working with Network Partners across Wales to deliver £1m of grants and services to support carers who are experiencing hardship this winter.

The support fund will help to ensure that carers across Wales are able to access grants (up to a maximum of £300) to help with anything from paying utility bills to buying a washing machine.

The new grant scheme will be delivered through Network Partners of Carers Trust ensuring that carers in all parts of Wales can access emergency grants and services to ensure they stay safe, warm and connected this winter.

The purpose of the new fund is to ensure that unpaid carers across Wales can access additional financial support to support their caring role. The fund will work in line with the three Welsh Government Ministerial Priorities for Carers:

  • Supporting life alongside caring
  • Identifying and recognising carers
  • Providing information, advice and assistance

Further details about how carers can access the grant scheme will be available on this web page in late November 2020.
