This section contains resources and information to help parents and carers looking for advice about social care issues.

Money Advice Service: Financial support for young carers
Looking after a member of your family who has a disability, illness, mental-health condition or drug or alcohol problem can be a massive commitment. Fortunately there’s financial support available, and support services to help share the load. For more information visit the Money Advice Service website. The Money Advice Service is a not for profit government organisation created solely to help people with their finances.

The Child Support Agency CSA will be changing to the Child Maintenance Service.
What does Child Maintenance cover: Child Maintenance is a legal responsibility for providing help with a child’s everyday living costs. This includes food and clothes and is usually paid by the parent without the main day to day care of a child and is paid to the other parent. It can make a real difference to the child’s life by helping to pay for clothes, food and other essentials.  It can also help to keep both parents involved in children’s lives. Most separated parents arrange the Child Maintenance between themselves either privately or through the Child Maintenance Service. The CMS is only for parents who have been unable to sort out a maintenance payment between themselves. Visit the PayPlan website to assist you further with your child maintenance queries.

Social Care

Short Breaks
Short breaks are activities for children and young people outside of the school day. These activities can happen in school premises or at other venues around the county ranging from social events to music, dance and sporting activities. Residential short breaks are considered, depending on individual family circumstances.
