Carers Trust currently has three grant funds open to individual adult carers, aged 16 or over.
  • Carers Essentials: Grants of up to £300 for essential household items that will benefit the carer in their caring role e.g. washing machines, cookers, beds.
  • Carers Take Time Out: Grants of up to £400 towards the cost of short breaks, respite care and holidays for carers and their families.
  • Carers: Skills for You: Grants of up to £500 towards the cost of courses and personal development for carers.

To apply contact your local carer services so they can advise you.  They will have to complete a supporting statement for you on the application form. 

If there is no carer service near you, or there are a limited number of grants, there are other grants available from other organisations.
