Carers grant

We know that caring for someone is a big commitment. It can often mean you put your own needs last and your wellbeing takes a hit.

Our Carer's Grants can help by funding activities or equipment that help you to relax or learn new skills.

What can our MS Society Carer's Grants fund?

Our grants fund a wide range of activities for both leisure and personal development.

  • Grants for leisure: These fund activities or equipment for hobbies that help you to unwind or try something new.
  • Personal development grants: They're there to help fund activities that help you gain knowledge for a new career or for 'life skills', such as driving.

How do I apply?

To apply, you'll need to fill in an application form. We'll also need a letter of support and two quotes for the item you're requesting.

Who can apply?

If you care for someone with MS in the UK and you're not paid for it, then you can apply.

When will I find out if I've been awarded a grant?

If you've asked for less than £500, we'll let you know our decision within three weeks of receiving your application.

If you're asking for over £500, it takes a bit longer. We'll be in touch within 12 weeks.
