Carers Small Grants Scheme
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 The Care Collective.
As an unpaid carer you can apply under one of the following four categories:
Carers Essentials – maximum award £300
Carers in Gwent can apply for small grants of up to £300 towards the cost of ONE piece of household equipment which will benefit them in their caring role.
Carers Time Out – maximum award £300
The ‘Time Out’ small grant is designed to give carers in Gwent a break from their caring role.
Carers Access – maximum award £500
Carers Access aims to remove some of the transport-related barriers to living a full and independent life that may have been placed on a person by their caring role. For example the grant could be used towards the cost of driving lessons.
Carers Skills – maximum award £300
These grants for learning new skills that can help with the caring role, help carers return to work or to have a new interest outside the caring role.
There are rules for who can receive a grant and what for, which we have to apply to every request. To avoid disappointment, before applying please read the Carers Small Grants Scheme - Guidance Notes for Applications.
