Support to unpaid carers

We are going to waive charges to carers with effect from 31 March given the current challenging time and how important the role that carers do is.

Carers are currently all entitled to a needs assessment regardless of their level of care or financial situation to determine whether they are eligible to receive support to help in carrying out their caring role.

Support provided for carers under the Care Act will now be offered with no financial assessment. We will also be offering advice in the next fortnight as to how assessments will be done given the need for social isolation.
