Apply for up to £3,000 for projects to support full-time unpaid carers who are caring for a loved one with dementia.

The Dementia Carers Fund makes grants of up to £3,000 to support charitable projects across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough that provide relief, respite and support to full-time unpaid carers. The key aims of the fund are to:


  • Give caring support to unpaid carers who need to attend appointments of their own (e.g. haircuts, doctors), and alleviate any worry about leaving their loved one.
  • Encourage unpaid carers to recharge and to stay healthy themselves by supporting them to take self-care breaks.
  • Support volunteer befriender initiatives.
