New Carer’s Allowance posters for colleges

This leaflet aims to clarify the rules on claiming Carer’s Allowance and studying full-time for staff working in colleges and other learning providers. If a young person’s course requires less than 21 hours of supervised study a week, they may still be eligible for Carer’s Allowance. The leaflet can therefore be used by staff in finance teams and student services to help young adult carers make accurate claims for Carer’s Allowance. It was developed in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions and members of the National Policy Forum for Young Adult Carers.
