Supporting someone

Financial help for carers

When you are supporting someone else you may have increased costs at a time when you are earning less. There are benefits and allowances available to help carers in different situations even if you don't consider yourself to be a formal carer.

The links in this section will help you to find out more about benefits, tax credits and allowances available for carers.

You will find additional information about benefits for people with cancer in our Main financial help section.
