If you care for someone at least 35 hours a week and they get PIP or DLA for example, you may be eligible for carers allowances. You do not have to be related to, or live with, the person you care for. For a full list of the benefits and other criteria please visit https://www.gov.uk/carers-allowance.
Claims are typically made online at the GOV UK website, see above.
How do we help?
As with other forms and applications we help parents with, we will talk you through each question in your Carers Allowance application and give you suggested answers you might give. Alternately, we can complete the application for you with your authorisation.
