Emergency fund to support family carers during pandemic

Solihull Council, in partnership with Carers Trust Solihull, has set up an emergency fund to support family carers struggling during the Covid-19 crisis.  

The fund, which is being administered by the Carers Trust Solihull, is for family carers who are at the point of crisis and need help with essentials up to £250 when no other solutions are available.  The fund may also be accessed by young carers supporting family members who require items such as learning resources or access to internet-based support groups.

Family carers can contact the Carers Trust Solihull for advice or support and further details about the emergency fund by calling 0121 788 1143 or visiting their website www.solihullcarers.org
