The Young Adult Carer’s (YAC) Bursary

The Young Adult Carer’s Bursary is for students aged 18 – 25 on 1 September 2018 and is worth £1,000 for each year of study.

To be eligible you must have been in receipt of Carers’ Allowance prior to the start of the course or engaged with your local Carer’s Centre or YAC Services as a registered carer and produce evidence to confirm this. If you’ve not been involved with a formal service it may be possible for us to accept written evidence of your status from a medical professional or teacher/tutor.

To apply for this bursary please contact Money Advice and Guidance money@liverpool.ac.uk.

This bursary is for UK Undergraduate students for Entry 2019.

Typically, full-time students are not eligible to claim Carer’s Allowance. If you are claiming Carers’ Allowance prior to starting your university course, your eligibility for this benefit will cease when you enrol at university. It is important that you notify the Benefits Agency that you have started full-time study to make sure you do not accrue subsequent overpayment.

Students will be ineligible to receive the YAC’s bursary if in receipt of Carer’s Allowance.
