€500 support grant for Wicklow carers coming this week


Wicklow TD, Minister Simon Harris has confirmed that just under 3,300 carers in County Wicklow will receive €500 this Thursday the 24th of November as part of 2023 Cost of Living Budget.

This payment is being made automatically to people receiving a Carer’s Allowance, Carer’s Benefit or Domiciliary Care Allowance payment.

The annual Carer’s Support Grant is paid to all carers providing full-time care to an older person or a person with a disability, regardless of their means or social insurance contributions.

Minister Harris said, “This payment in addition to the annual Carer’s Support Grant paid earlier this year will help families and households with the cost of living over the winter months.”

“I would like to take this opportunity recognise the vital role that carers play in our society and our local communities across County Wicklow. This payment goes towards supporting those who carry out this important work. The work and commitment that carers undertake across our County must be commended and we will continue to work hard to support all they do,” Minister Harris concluded.
