What We Do
Carers Wellbeing Fund
If you care for someone who lives 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 support carers and to improve their own health and wellbeing.
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 and who could not manage without your help, and you are not employed to do this.
The fund is discretionary. This means that there is limited money available so not all applications will be successful.
To apply to the Carers Wellbeing Fund, download the Application Pack from 'Related Documents'.
Once we receive your completed application form it will be processed and you will usually hear within 6 weeks whether you have been successful or not.
