Unpaid carers' support payment

​​​If you are an unpaid carer in Wales receiving Carers Allowance on 31 March 2022, you can apply for a one-off £500 payment.

This payment is to recognise your important role and to help you with the increased financial pressure you experienced throughout the pandemic.

You are eligible if you are an unpaid carer for at least 35 hours a week on a low income and receiving Carers Allowance on 31 March 2022.


The first window to apply has now closed.

If you live in Cardiff, you can apply for this payment during the second window from 25 July to 5pm on 5 August 2022. 

If your application is successful, you will receive your payment between June and the end of September 2022. ​
