Working Tax Credit - fancy talking to Radio 4?

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
A couple of weeks ago we won a small victory to protect carers on Carer's Allowance the Government's plans to increase the number of hours couples need to work to get Working Tax Credit from 16 to 24. Details at www.carersuk.org/newsroom/item/2532-suc ... ect-carers

Radio 4's Moneybox Live programme are covering this and are keen to interview a carer over the phone who will benefit from the new exemption and who would otherwise have lost Working Tax Credit. They're happy just to use first names and it would be prerecorded rather than live!

If you might be happy to do the interview, you can PM me or email steve.mcintosh@carersuk.org

And don't worry - we're still talking to the media about all the other cuts that carers and their families are worried about but aren't being protected from.

Good work Steve and all the others working so hard behind the scenes...
