Young Carer Grant: First Anniversary
October 21, 2020
Wednesday 21st October is the first birthday of the Young Carer Grant.
The Young Carer Grant is a £305.10 payment available on an annual basis for 16 – 18 year olds who spend an average of 16 hours a week caring for someone who receives a disability benefit.
Young carers can spend the money on anything they want, from driving lessons to clothes or a subscription to a music or video streaming service.
If it has been a year since they received a payment, young carers are encouraged to check if they’re still eligible and apply again.
To apply or reapply, or for further information, please visit the Young Carer Grant page.
