Help with finances

Your caring responsibilities might be affecting your finances in a negative way. If this is something you are worried about you can look at ways to increase your income. You may also want to look for advice on managing your money.

Our 'Money' page has information on available financial support and advice.

The Connect to Support website also has information about financial support available to carers.

An easy way to check for any benefits you might be able to receive is through Wakefield Council’s benefits checker.

Support you might be eligible for includes:

  • My Time Carer Break
  • Carers Allowance
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Council Tax benefits/ discounts
  • Carers Personal Budget
