Help paying for Care

Benefits and Support


Benefits are important for many people and their welfare, which is why it is so important that you take up what you are entitled to. Most Benefits are overseen and arranged by the Government, usually through the Department for Work and Pensions. The main exception is payment for people who are eligible for help with housing costs.

There is further information on benefits and support, help paying for care and self-funding your care on the Birmingham City Council website.
