This event is open to carers residing in or caring for a person in Edinburgh only.

Duration: 1 session, Wednesday 7 September

About the event:

Many carers find themselves in the positioning of having to access benefits for themselves or the person they care for. Navigating the welfare system can be confusing so come along to this session led by the Carer Support Practitioner team at VOCAL to ask specific questions about benefits and find out what’s available.

The session will cover:

  • An outline of the benefits applicable to carers
  • An outline of some of the benefits that may be relevant to the cared for person and any changes due to Coronavirus
  • Information on Carers Allowance, Attendances Allowance, PIP, ESA, DLA and universal credit

Delivered by
The Carer Support Practitioner team at VOCAL
