The grant can fund groups or organisations, both formal and informal, that provide support to unpaid carers. It aims to:
– Provide carers access to activities and support
– Assist the development and sustainability of self-support groups
– Support groups to help carers to self-manage their health and wellbeing, reduce isolation, increase confidence and improve independent living skills
Groups can apply for up to £1000 per application (max £100 per carer). You may apply more than once per year but your annual total must not exceed £3500. New groups can apply for up to £500 towards their start-up costs first, then apply for further funds later.
