Ive spoken to some one in authority who wants to remain nameless he / she has told me the powers that be would never increase the carers payment (£49) but they may issue the disabled person with a voucher not sure what value they would be we can then spend them on day care or for sitters or even respite care or meals on wheels or even disability aids the list go`s on i was thinking if the vouchers scheme has any truth to it we as carers could all become self employed carers and get our relatives or whatever to pay us with the vouchers.
has any one heard of this scheme or is my contact talking well you know what he/she is normaly spot on so i think it may well have some basis of truth.
