Carer’s Allowance is a benefit that you can claim if you spend at least 35 hours a week providing care to someone with a disability (doesn’t need to be a relative). It’s worth £67.25 a week.
To qualify, you need to earn less than £128 a week outside this allowance and after Income Tax, National Insurance, and expenses (both expenses related to your carer work and expenses for self-employment, etc.).
Is Carer’s Allowance taxable?
However, you’ll only have to pay tax on it if you have other sources of taxable income (pension, profit from self-employment, etc.), and these combined with Carer’s Allowance take you over the Personal Allowance.
