Benefit for young carers enters second year
Young carers are being encouraged to check if they are entitled to further awards as the Young Carer Grant marks it’s anniversary.
The Young Carer Grant is a £305.10 payment available on an annual basis for 16, 17 and 18 year olds who spend an average of 16 hours a week caring for someone who receives a disability benefit. Those who have already had a payment are able to apply again if a year has passed since they received their money.
