campaign to save attendance allowance

I've just come across this:

https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/ ... -abolished

I have previously written to my MP about this topic, and she passed my enquiry on to Sajid Javid (Sec of State for Communities and Local Government. In his written response, which I received today, he suggests submitting comments via the following page:

https://www.gov.uk/government/consultat ... -retention

I would urge you all to submit your comments. The deadline is 26 September, so not that long left.

Many thanks.

Emma

Hello Emma & every body , please remember *Attendance Allowance* also lets you claim other *Benefits* also E G Carer's Allowance ( only certain groups only) plus SMI Council Tax Disregard if your loved one is living with Dementia etc


It is vital that the A A is kept Via Central Govt & not L A'S ! ! !


Age Uk also have a Campaign for this


Please support the Petition , thank you !
