Carers Grants

Carers Grants provide financial support to individual carers of all ages via its four different grant funds. The service is funded by the Health Board and run by Carers Trust South East Wales (CTSEW).

As an unpaid carer you can apply under one of the following four categories:

  • Carers Essentials – maximum award £300
  • Carers Time Out – maximum award £500
  • Carers Access – maximum award £500
  • Carers Skills – maximum award £500

Due to local lockdown restrictions and the continued likelihood of disruption to holidays we have now taken the decision to suspend applications for holidays outside of the Local Authority the carer lives within. 

The ‘Time Out’ grant is designed to give carers a break from their caring role. As holidays are not currently an option we have taken the decision to broaden the remit of the ‘Time out’ category and Carer’s are now able to apply for items / services that will give them respite / breaks at home and within their Local Authority. Additional information is available in the Smal Grant 'Time Out' Guidance document.
