If you don’t get a payment, you can still ask for help

Some carers think that you have to ‘prove’ that you are a carer before getting help. They think that only people who receive a Carer Payment, Carer Allowance or Carer Supplement can get other help available for carers. But even if you can’t get a government payment, you can still use many other services to help you and the person you care for.

Family payments

If you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with dependent children under the age of 16, you may get general payments available for carers.
