Carers Innovation Fund: how to apply

A new Carers Innovation Fund has been launched to help finance innovative ways of supporting unpaid carers. Charities can bid for funding of up to £500,000 to support projects such as technology platforms that help carers to take a break from their caring responsibilities and support groups such as carers’ cafes and Men’s Sheds.

The government is committed to continuing to support carers to provide care as they would wish, and to do so in a way that supports their own health and wellbeing, employment and other life chances.
