Carer’s Allowance is extra money to help you look after your child if they have substantial caring needs. You could also get Carer’s Credit so there won’t be any gaps in your National Insurance record. Carer’s Allowance is £67.25 a week. You don’t have to be related to, or live with, the person you care for. You must be 16 or over and spend at least 35 hours a week caring for your child.
