Community Care Grants help people on a low income.
You don’t have to be in receipt of benefits but must be on an equivalent income. If you have savings of over £700, you are unlikely to qualify.
Help with the costs of essential items such as cookers, beds, and washing machines for people leaving the care system or hospital, or those who may otherwise be at risk of entering care without this help. CCGs can also help families who can demonstrate that they are living with exceptional pressure e.g. caring for a child or adult with a disability or long term health condition.
