Carers UK

Carers UK Advice line

You can talk to us two days a week, no matter where you are in the UK or how complex your query is. We do benefits checks and advise on financial and practical matters related to caring. For a limited time, while we undergo staff changes, Carers UK’s advice line will be open between 10am – 4pm on Monday & Tuesday. Alternatively, you can email or write to the Advice line and we will respond to your enquiries within ten working days.

Please Note:  The Advice line is closed the week beginning the 19th of March 2018

We provide information and advice on:

  • benefits and tax credits
  • carers employment rights
  • carers’ assessments
  • the services available for carers
  • how to complain effectively and challenge decisions.

Our listening service is there for you to talk through your caring situation with a trained volunteer who understands what you are going through.*

Open Monday & Tuesday 10am to 4pm.
*Note: listening service available Mondays and Tuesdays, from 9am to 7pm.
