Eligibility for Grandcarer Support Scheme
If you have had fulltime care of your grandchildren for at least four months in the past year, they are currently in your care and are aged under 18, you may be eligible for an annual payment. Fulltime carer means you are the primary carer (i.e. not a baby sitter).
You will not be eligible if you already receive foster care payments from the Department of Communities.
Contact Wanslea on the above number to discuss your eligibility or if you have questions.
