Financial help for carets

Hello all

I’ve recently become a carer for my cousin and since the pandemic and rise of living costs have started to struggle financially, I was wondering if there are any loans/grants available for carers receiving UC with carer element and careers allowance ? Other than budgeting loan .

Would be very grateful for any information
Many thanks

Hi Kion_2206, and welcome!

I’m not aware of anything that would help, but the best place to check with is the Helpline, which is open Monday-Friday 9-6pm, on 0808 808 7777

If you would tell us a bit more about your caring situation, where your cousin lives, why they need help etc that would help?
