Abolish Carers allowance?

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
Hi

Hi pamr

yes you got it right

If you meet the requirements to claim CA under the present rules by definition we are disabled by association. We would be able to claim DLA carers component as a individual.
DLA is a non means tested benefit, so any other benefit received would not be affected, it would solve a lot of problems and only carers would benefit.
sounds as though it may be the way to go kev, and Carers UK. looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it CUK.
