Media case study needed

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
Can you help us with Media? We've spotted a loophole in the new rules on Universal Credit that may affect a small number of carers who move onto Universal Credit. They may be at risk of losing the earnings disregard- this would mean that their earnings were tapered away from the first £ they earn, rather than the first £20 a week earnings being disregarded.

This would not affect anyone who is in a couple, is caring for a disabled child under 16, or is a lone parent of a child under 16. However it may affect some other carers.

We need a case study willing to talk to the press who is
- someone on Income Support and Carer's Premium who works just a few hours a week; earning £20 or less a week.
- is single and caring for an adult disabled child or other adult relative who isn't a partner. (For example single woman caring for elderly parent)

You'd need you to talk to press about why work and pay is important to you. If interested please email matt.hill@carersuk.org
could it not also be a single man ..and is the welafre reform which universal credit is part of not through the house as yet and can still be amended within the house of Lords or committee stage??
