It's been revealed carers in Wales are missing out on £66million of unclaimed benefits.
Charity Carers UK said losing out on financial support puts carers at risk of long-term debt and financial hardship.
If you suddenly need to provide full-time care for an older, ill or disabled loved one your life can be turned upside-down. When their welfare is your top priority, looking after your own finances can easily fall by the wayside. If carers have been forced to give up work to care, just as the family face all the extra household and transport costs of caring - this can rapidly push carers into long-term debt and financial hardship.
It is vital that anyone caring for a loved one seeks advice to check they are getting all the financial help and practical support they are entitled to.
