    carers payment

    carers one off payment is worth £250, you phone social services help desk,
    they send out forms then a quick call back, then money.
    best kept secret by your local council.!!!

    This differs from borough to borough.
    My council says it cannot afford the admin for these payments so they make a lump sum available to a carers charity who administers it.
    For some years it was the cares info service that administered these grants and they paid every other year for a short break and monthly travel grants.
    then they gave it to crossroads who got rid of transport breaks but carried on with bi-anual short breaks
    this year they have got rid of short breaks and are giving the grant for any purpose but only to carers over fifty who care for someone over fifty

    Is this all carers receiving the carers allowance?

    Differs from one borough to next, try phoning your local council and asking, or if you have a crossroads or other carer support group ask them

    It does differ from LA to LA. You have to know about it, and then to apply for it.
