Extra financial support for unpaid carers

Posted on December 4th, 2023

Hertfordshire County Council is providing an additional £1.5m worth of support for unpaid carers.

The extra money is part of the £12.3m the council has been given from the government’s Household Support Fund (HSF) to provide additional help to those households most in need.

The council is working closely with Carers in Hertfordshire to administer the scheme. Around 10,000 unpaid carers, including young carers, will benefit from the voucher worth over £100, which they will be able to collect from their local Post Office.

To be eligible, carers must have been registered with Carers in Hertfordshire before the end of October.
