pay during lockdown for carers

Hello

I was wondering if anyone had found any information on carers and pay during the 4 week lockdown. I'm off work (teacher) as I am looking after my adult daughter who has Downs Syndrome and is on the extremely clincal vulnerable list. My school have agreed to 4 weeks leave but only 2 of them paid. She cannot be left on her own so I have no choice but to be off, however, I can't afford to lose the money.

Any advice appreciated.

Jackie

How old is your daughter? Does she get Direct Payments?
