There are benefits just for carers, some for people with a disability, and some to help you if you have a low income. Working out what benefits you may be entitled to can feel like a battle. Having the right information and support can make a huge difference.
This section helps to signpost carers to appropriate organisations which can help with any money questions or problems you might have.
Remember, you can still claim some benefits if you work, have savings or own your own home.
