Carers FIRST has been shortlisted for the Natwest Skill & Opportunity Fund
In 2018, Natwest have made £1 million available across England and Wales through their Skills & Opportunities Fund. Regional boards (with the help of a public vote) will determine the destination of grants of up to £35,000.
The aim of this fund is to help build better communities for everyone, by seeking projects that will enable people in disadvantaged communities to develop, create or access the skills and opportunities they need to build their financial capability skills or to start or develop a new business now or in the future
Carers FIRST have got through to the public vote to employ a Carers Rights Advisor who will support our un-paid carers to maximise their household income. They will provide support either face to face or over the phone to look at carers welfare and disability benefit entitlements and carry out benefits checks. We also want to train 6 volunteers to deliver additional support. The project wants to help relieve carers from poverty. Personalised advice and support will ensure carers are financially better off now and in the future, as they can more effectively manage their money.
We would now please like your help! Click on the link below and go to the projects in the South East to vote for Carers FIRST. It would be great if you could share the link with any friends, family or anybody else you know who might like to support us.
