We are pleased to announce that applications for the Edinburgh Carer Assistance Fund have now re-opened.

The Carer Assistance Fund will help those in greatest need through the delivery of grants up to £500 per carer household. Carers can apply for support with fuel payments, food vouchers, or general costs associated with improving their financial situation. General grants cover wellbeing activities to reduce stress, access breaks from caring, purchase basic furniture (including white goods), support to seek employment and costs associated with caring such as training, transport or equipment.

Carers can apply directly through our website, in the Carer Recovery Fund section.
