East Ren Carers

This is helpful news for the carers in East Renfrewshire, who make such a huge and important contribution. I am glad that the Scottish Government has taken this step.


This should mean approximately 83,000 eligible carers in Scotland will get an extra £230.10 via a one-off Coronavirus Carer’s Allowance Supplement in June.


The extra payment will be made automatically to people in receipt of Carer’s Allowance, and will benefit carers who are on low incomes and already have some of the most intense caring roles, providing at least 35 hours unpaid care weekly to a disabled child or adult in receipt of higher level disability benefits.
