Respite Fund FAQs

Who is eligible?

Any unpaid carer who is registered with a Carers Trust Network Partner is eligible to apply for support from The Princess Royal Respite Fund For Carers.

Applications must be made through the Network Partner with which the carer is registered.

Carers will be able to apply for support from the fund from June onwards.

What if I'm not registered with a Network Parter?

If you are not registered with a Carers Trust Network Partner, you can find the contact details of your local Carers Trust Network Partner by entering your postcode on our Carers Services Near You page (any time) or calling 0300 772 9600 (Mon–Fri, 9am–5pm).

Please note that if you are not registered with a Network Partner you will not be able to apply for a Respite Fund grant.

What if there isn't a Network Partner in my area?

If there isn't a Carers Trust Network Partner in your area, then unfortunately you will be unable to apply for support from the Respite Fund. If there's no Network Partner in your area there might be other grants services you can apply for.
