Prepared internally, no external costs.



How many registered carers (people who qualify for the Home Carer's Allowance​) are there in Jersey?


How many registered carers were there five years ago (or indeed a previous year as a point of comparison against the most recent data)?


What is the number of young carers in the island (or the percentage of carers who are thought to be young carers)?  Please compare this to a previous set of data , for example five years ago.


How much money has been given out by the Government of Jersey in Home Carer's Allowance in 2023, and then how much has been given out in each of the eight years previous to 2023?


A to D

Below are the numbers of people who received Home Carers Allowance at year end from 2013 to 2023 along with the expenditure for those years:

Year EndTotal Numbers of Home Carers Allowance Claims at Year EndTotal Year Expenditure for Home Carers Allowance per year

​In respect of question C, Customer & Local Services does not hold any data specifically on young carers, although a young person who is an insured person under the Social Security (Jersey) Law 1974 and has paid the relevant contributions may make an application for Home Carers Allowance.

The information as requested in question C is not held in a format for the purpose of Freedom of Information. It has been assessed that any information held would be on individual records and the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 does not require a Scheduled Public Authority to manipulate data in order to provide a response. Article 3 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 therefore applies.

Article applied

For the purposes of this Law, information is held by a public authority if –

(a) it is held by the authority, otherwise than on behalf of another person; or

(b) it is held by another person on behalf of the authority.​
