Personal budgets

A personal budget is a one-off payment available to eligible carers where there are specific needs identified to help support you in your caring role.

The offer of a personal budget for carers will depend on your own personal circumstances.  This will be determined following your conversation with us to identify what your needs are as a carer, and specifically how a personal budget can be used to support you to look after your own health and wellbeing.

Some examples of where a personal budget may be offered to eligible carers may include: 

  • Equipment to help with your caring role
  • One-off activities, items, or services to specifically support carer mental and physical wellbeing
  • College or training courses
  • Helping carers back to work

If you wish to discuss your needs as carer, please contact us
