Carers Allowance

Benefit to help in your caring role

Carer’s Allowance helps you look after someone with substantial care needs.

You don’t have to be related to, or live with, the person you care for.

You must be 16 or over and spend at least 35 hours a week caring for them.

You can find out more about Carers Allowance on the GOV.UK website.
