Providing CA isnt going to be scrapped in the near future !
Who knows what will happen with CA Tinker, whether it be scrapped/changed names etc,but it cannot remain as it is.Getting it increased,restrictions lifted,rulings changed etc is something we,as in carers everywhere, both on and offline have been fighting for.Some carers have even floated the ideas of a Carers Wage or of a Social wage.
Every report,every survey/polls,every consultation with carers brought the same main topic in that CA as it stands is a disgrace.
For all the government go on about possibly increasing Individual Budgets/DP's, of getting officials to recognise carers....if come the Announcement
, Finances for carers is not addressed ,they wasted both time and money with the consultation events.
You only have to read all the carer forums,read various media articles and just now especially Radio4,to see the effect of claiming CA has on carers lives.
It has to be changed Tinker,just how we will have to see.
Hope you and yours are well,how is your daughter these days?
