Duke of Cornwall's Benevolent Fund

The Duke of Cornwall's Benevolent Fund aims to make a real difference to young carers.  A young carer is anyone aged 18 or under who helps to look after a relative or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health condition or substance abuse problem where these duties go beyond what would be expected for a person of their age.

Grants will be available to individuals within Cornwall who require support with the following; this is not an exhaustive list:

  • Respite Care

  • Accommodation

  • Learning Breaks

  • Healthy living

  • Activities/ Hobbies

  • Equipment  

The funds are aimed at offering young carers the opportunity to be young people free from their caring responsibilities.

An application for a grant must be made by an organisation for the benefit of any, young carer resident in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly, who requires support.

Applications will be viewed frequently (please phone if you need to know exact dates).
