Carers benefits, grants and legal services

Carers benefits, grants and legal services

Carers often need to know about the same money and legal matters as everyone else. But there are some things that are just for carers. For example, you might be able to get benefits such as Carer's Allowance if you provide unpaid support to someone. There are also some legal matters that are particularly relevant to carers, such as applying to become a deputy for the person you care for. If you need advice about benefits or money in general, you can find it here and you can also get legal advice, guidance on making a complaint, and more.
