Grants for carers

Please see link from VOCAL (Voice of Carers Across Lothian) regarding their new Carer Recovery Fund.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Edinburgh’s and Midlothian’s unpaid carers to receive a grant of up to £500 to improve their wellbeing.

Each carer household can apply for a one-off £250-£500 grant. One successful application can be made for a grant from each carer household and does not need to be repaid. It is possible to make two applications to the fund but there must be at least six months between applications.

The fund  can be used for fuel support, food support, or there is a general carer recovery fund that includes wellbeing activities to reduce stress, or costs associated with caring, for example, transport, training, equipment.
