I look after my partner who has learning difficulties and am diabetic type 1. My partner used to have a personal assistant for over 8 years and I took over and started taking care of the whole family even though I was not paid for it for almost 4 years. I just applied for a carer's allowance in February this year. And I can say for a fact that my partner has improved very well as a person and a mum to our kids since I took over as a carer. We are very proud of her.
However, for us to move on as a family, and for me to be able to go out and even do a part time job, I applied for a 3 bedroom so we can have the little ones in their own room as we are in a 2 bedroom at the moment. We have 3 kids now, 12yrs, 3 yrs and 3 months old. For me to be able to leave the house and do a part time job and for my partner to be able to do some charity jobs and mingle with people to boost her morale, we needed a room for the kids for them to stay and play and not our room with my medications as my partner is blind in our eye and have learning difficulties but Northampton Council is saying no for my application. Am very stressed
