Personal budgets for carers

A personal budget is a one-off payment of up to £200 to help carers look after their own health and wellbeing. For example:

  • funding towards the cost of holidays, weekends away, days out, spa days etc
  • transport for a break away or visiting family
  • funding for a hobby e.g. fishing, golf, cooking, exercise equipment
  • college courses
  • driving lessons
  • home improvements, gardening, domestic help
  • equipment to help caring, e,g. washing machine, dishwasher
  • funding to support a return to work.

To see if you are eligible for a personal budget you will need to have a carer's assessment to look at what your needs are.
