Hello Eliza - nope, it's not the general rule. In fact, Carers get nothing much at the end of the day.
There have been cases where people do get a grant for certain things - it very much depends on where you live, etc...
To be in with a chance, I suggest that you have a Carers Assessment done Image

it used to be if u looked after a child u got alot of help, the rowntree trust got me a tumble dryer (didnt have one) and they also gave me £100 towards a holiday, pontins cambersands for £80 and £20 to get there i think was money well spent!

now though i think alot of it has been scrapped
u do however as a carer get
tiered
worried sick
a taste for cardies with useful pockets
and find velcro is just amazing for so many things!

on the plus side u know each night u r doing something good for some one and u learn more about your capabilities than u ever thought possible

No Freebees,I think/

Sleepless nights........less money.......little help..........no social life or very little if your lucky.......bald heads through pulling your hair out......and a pittance of carers pay from the goverment but in saying that we do it out of love and devotion.
