Sorry Venessa but Carers Allowance is only paid once despite the number of people you care for - so 1 or 5 you still only get the one amount Image

Look up the number for the dwp - department for work and pensions and ask about DLA and carers allowance.

Hi Venessa, caring for two people is tough. Whilst you can't claim double Carer's Allowance, it might be possible for your carees to receive Direct Payments from the local authority which could be used to pay you. Ring the Carers UK helpline, or email them, for more information.
