Carers funding and finance support

As a carer you might have had to give up work, or need to know about any kind of financial support that is available.



The Connect to Support Hampshire website has useful information about carer finance.

The website also has information about financial support and advice for the person you care for.


Have a look at the benefits page to make sure that the person you are caring for is receiving all the benefits and discounts that they are entitled to.


Nationally, there is a lot of information about claiming Carers Allowance and other financial issues which carers need to know, on the Direct.gov website.


The Carers Trust also has a very comprehensive section on finances and benefits for carers on their website.


It is important to know what discounts are available to you as a carer. Days out like zoos, farms and theme parks often have free carers tickets. You can check the website of the place you are visiting or give them a call beforehand. Proof is needed so do ask what they require. If you haven't already, take a look at Discounts for Carers.
