You could get Carers Allowance if you care for someone at least 35 hours a week and they get certain benefits.
You don’t have to be related to, or live with, the person you care for.
You won’t be paid extra if you care for more than one person.
Carer’s Allowance can affect the other benefits that you and the person you care for get. You have to pay tax on it if your income is over the Personal Allowance.
