The Welsh Government are inviting all eligible unpaid carers in Wales to apply for a one-off payment of £500.

The payment is to acknowledge the financial pressures many unpaid carers have felt during the pandemic and to help with some of extra costs they have had. The payment is for unpaid carers who care for someone at least 35 hours a week and have low incomes.

This scheme is now closed. Applications already received will be processed by 30th September 2022.

All applications received before 5pm on 15th July will be processed by 30th, September 2022
