Take Action and Support Fund

The Carers Centre has recently been awarded funds from Carers Trust to allow us to make small grants of up to £150 per young carer aged 14-25 years old.

The Grants can be used for the following:

– Travel costs to enable young adult carers to attend interviews, – school, college, university, work or training

– Fees for training courses or trips

– Textbooks and revision guides

– IT equipment

– Uniform/clothing for school, work, training or interviews

– Haircuts prior to interviews

– Driving lessons (if being unable to drive is a barrier to their engaging in education, employment and training. This could be in addition to a Carers Access grant from Carers Trust.)

– Crisis respite care (short term cover to enable attendance at an interview, training or exam)
