£5 million fund to develop support for unpaid carers

Posted on 25 June 2019 (Permalink)

Following its announcement last year as part of the Carers Action Plan, the Government has established a new £5 million fund to improve support to unpaid carers across the country.

The funding which should be used for projects that support carers in creative and innovative ways is available to the voluntary sector, charities, SMEs and commercial organisations.

Whilst this is not directly open to councils there may be local organisations that councils are working with who you may wish to make aware about this opportunity. This fund is also not limited to work on digital and technology.
