The Department for Health and Social Care has made £5 million available to improve support for carers and has published guidance which sets out the application process for the Carers Innovation Fund.

It is seeking applications from organisations from a mix of sectors for projects that will help carers to be:

  • more recognised and connected
  • better able to juggle working and caring
  • better able to look after their own health and wellbeing
