Carer Wellbeing Fund Carer Wellbeing Fund

'The £300 means that I can continue to go to the gym again this year. I feel as though my health has really improved.'

As a carer registered with us, you are welcome to apply for a grant from our Carer Wellbeing Fund.  We will help identify any concerns you have about your caring role, your goals, and how we may be able to help you achieve these. 

The money from the fund can be used flexibly on purposes which would enhance a carer’s health and/or wellbeing; for instance carers have previously used the money such as gym or swimming sessions, breaks away, massage and de-stressing therapies.  If you identify a purpose that we can’t consider from the fund, our support workers will try to suggest other possible sources of funding that you could apply to.  As there is limited funding, we may not be able to consider the whole cost of what you are asking for, but will try and make a contribution when we can, subject to demands on the fund.

Just bear in mind that applications to the fund are not guaranteed so please don’t commit yourself in advance to any arrangement.

Applying to the fund is easy – just call us on 0300 028 8888 and we’ll help you get started on an application.  We aim to give you a decision within 4-6 weeks of getting your application.
