40% of carers have missed out on financial support as a result of not getting the right information and advice, according to Carers UK
A new leaflet has been produced especially for carers to ensure they can get the support they need on financial matters: Finances for carers. https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/media-library/documents/adult-social-services/factsheets/finances-for-carers.pdf
The leaflet gives a brief overview of benefits for carers and other financial issues and points the way to sources of information, support and advice. Leaflets can be picked up in Hertfordshire Libraries and are also available to print from www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/factsheets
This is part of a project to boost the financial information and advice available for the people of Hertfordshire. There are new financial information leaflets for people with a disability and about planning ahead for care costs. Look out for a new financial information tool on the website coming soon – more details to follow.
