How to actually apply for Carers element?


I tick all the boxes to apply for carers element, but struggle to see how to actually apply online? I ‘Reported a change of circumstances’ which asked for date i started caring and the person im caring for, is that all i need to do? I can’t see any other option to apply.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks, Kirsty.
