Carer Support Fund South East Wales

Due to the unprecedented demand, we have reluctantly decided to put a temporary hold on receiving new grant applications.

It is important to us that we do not give any false hope or expectation and need to inform you that in order for this grant scheme to be successful we will need to re-evaluate.

All grant applications that have been received to date will still be considered and you will be informed with an outcome. We would appreciate your patience in this matter.
