    These were small grants usually upto £50 organised by local councils, they do however seem to have ended now from what I can see.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Hi @jetskidia -  Is this a national or local fund?

    @chiarieds it looks like they were local, but all the ones I can see online have now closed.

    There was a advert on tv today telling carers to make sure that they claim?

    @jetskidia I think there remains some local opportunities to claim this open, such as this in Hampshire which is open to applications whilst the end of March.   

    We could help you look for one local to you, if you are comfortable to give us a rough idea of where you live :)

    @jetskidia Great.  Now I'm not known for my geographic prowess but I believe that falls under the remit of Hampshire council.  The Hampshire country council website advises people to apply and enquire about the Carers Wellbeing covid fund via:

     
    visiting http://www.connecttosupporthampshire.org.uk/news or calling:
     
    • Andover MIND - 01264 332297 (select option 3). Monday to Friday: 9am – 5pm. [email protected]
     
    • The Princess Royal Trust for Carers in Hampshire - 01264 835246. Monday to Thursday: 9am - 5pm / Friday: 9am - 4.30pm. [email protected]
     
    • Carers Together - 01794 519495.  Monday to Friday: 9.30am-1.30pm (answer machine outside these hours). [email protected]
     
    • The Hampshire Coronavirus Support & Helpline - 0333 370 4000 (calls charged at local rate)
     
    Applications to the Carers Wellbeing COVID Fund can be made up until the end of March 2021. It is open to anyone who provides unpaid care including anyone who is under 18.
    Hope that helps and I haven't got my areas confused!
