The Carer’s Support Grant is an annual payment paid by my Department to full time carers.

The person concerned was awarded the 2018 and 2019 Grants on 4 October 2019. Written notification of this award was sent to her that day. An amount of €3,400 (€1,700 for 2018 and €1,700 for 2019) was sent to her nominated bank account on 10 October 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
