Confirmation that the Wales Carers Support Fund will continue until 2025

To coincide with Carers Week 2022, the Welsh Government has today, 6 June, announced that funding for the Carers Support Fund has been extended until March 2025.

This fund, administered by Carers Trust Wales and our local network partners in 2020-21 and again in 2021-22, reached more than 10,000 unpaid carers in Wales. It provided vouchers to buy everyday essential items and funded services to help carers manage the additional pressures of caring during the pandemic.

Worth £4.5m over the next three years, the Carers Support Fund 2022-25 will help mitigate some of the impacts of the current cost of living crisis on unpaid carers.

When the fund opens in the coming months, carers will be able to access much needed practical support from local carers support services.

Welcoming the fund, Simon Hatch, Director of Carers Trust Wales, said:

“We are delighted the Welsh Government have recognised the importance of this crucial fund and have extended its delivery over the next three years.

“With the increasing cost of living hitting carers hard, the extended fund will allow us to support thousands more carers with the practical and financial support they need.”
