Help for carers from benefits and grants


Turn2us has produced a series of articles on the help available to carers that can be accessed or identified through our online services for a Carers Trust themed event running all this week.

Written by our benefits and information specialists, the articles are being published on the Carers Space section of the Carer's Trust website - one article each day.

They cover:

  • Benefits for carers
  • Carer’s Allowance: Are you claiming yours?
  • Help for carers from grants
  • Help for carers from the Turn2us Elizabeth Finn Fund
  • Emergency Help for Carers (will be published on Friday 28 October)

Turn2us resources for carers

If you are a carer struggling to make ends meet, use our Benefits Calculator to check your entitlement to benefits and our Grants Search to see if you are eligible for help from a charitable fund, based on your personal background, circumstances and needs.

The Turn2us Your Situation online section contains resources on benefits, grants and managing money, including useful links sheets and a Find an Adviser tool to help you find national and local sources of further help. This includes sections for Carers, People who are Ill, Injured or Disabled and a Help with housing costs section.
