Applications have recently opened for carers in the Bradford and Airedale, Harrogate and Ripon, and Craven districts of Yorkshire to apply for a carer’s wellbeing grant. Please note there is a deadline of Friday 16 December 2016.
What is a Carer’s wellbeing grant?
A Carer’s Wellbeing Grant is a payment of up to £200 and is intended to help carers to promote their own health and wellbeing. The amount allocated in each application will be considered by a panel (the panels’ decision is final) and there may be a maximum level of grant awarded for particular items. The grant is not means tested.
A Carer can apply for a Carer’s Wellbeing Grant if they satisfy the following Eligibility Criteria:
- They are an unpaid carer (carers are considered unpaid even if they are in receipt of Carer’s Allowance or manage Direct Payment/Individual Budget Funds for the person for whom they care). The fund is not for Personal Assistants or unpaid volunteers.
- The carer lives in and cares for someone living in the geographical boundaries of Bradford City, Bradford District, and Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven Clinical Commissioning Groups.
- Their application is for something to spend on themselves promote their own health and wellbeing.
