Carers Allowance

Carer’s Allowance is administered by the DWP and is a subsidy for people who spend a minimum 35 hours a week providing regular care to someone who has a disability.
To be eligible the person you care for must be receiving a relevant benefit related to their disability and in some cases this may mean that the benefit is paid at a certain rate.

Should you be eligible for Carer’s Allowance you will receive approximately £62 a week.
