Carers Wellbeing Fund

Do you care for someone in Newcastle upon Tyne? The Carers Wellbeing Fund may be able to provide a small grant to help you as a carer. The fund is intended to help improve your health and wellbeing.  

Who can apply to the Carers Wellbeing Fund?

The funding is provided by Newcastle City Council and the Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS) and is administered by Newcastle Carers.  The fund is discretionary. This means that there is limited money available so unfortunately not all applications will be successful, however we are here should you need any information or guidance.  

You can apply to the Carers Wellbeing Fund if you are over 18 and look after someone who is ill, disabled, has mental health problems or is misusing drugs or alcohol, who could not manage without your help, and you are not employed to do this.  

For more information or to apply, download the Carers Wellbeing Fund Application Pack.  

Please read the Carers Wellbeing Fund Guidance Notes carefully as there have been some recent changes.  

If you are caring for someone and would like to know more about how we can provide information, advice and support, please talk to us.
