What you can apply for
We have payments you can apply for if you’re a grandparent or non parent carer.
Use our Payment and Service Finder to see if you can get a payment.
Register for an online account if you don’t already have one.
When you apply you’ll need to give us documents to support your claim, including:
- formal agreements such as court orders or care arrangements for each child
- dates, times and documents that show a child is in your care, such as school attendance and health records.
You can also find other government and community services using Service Finder.
