Carer's allowance is increased every April in line with movement in the retail prices index and there are currently no plans to change these arrangements. However, the future of carer's allowance is now being examined as part of the review of the Prime Minister's 1999 national carers' strategy. The review is due to be published in spring 2008.

Has Carers Allowance a future at all?

Or will it be removed in favour of DP and IB.

How would Carers feel about being their carees employee?
What if no agreement can be reached on terms and conditions?
Bring in the union?
.
And what happens to carers whose carees get no services whatsoever from social services, do they get nothing?
.
Makes you wonder doesn't it?
Inevitably govs seem to give with one hand and take away with the other?

Winners and Losers, not the most efficient, reliable or confidense building
way to govern a country.
.
and what about carers who get nothing at all...........suppose they don't count for anything then?!!!!!!!
We want more than just an increase in the carers allowance we have a very long wish list what is it as an unpaid carer that you would like help with ?
thats if ive remembered correctly and you are an unpaid carer.
I HAVE SAID IN OLD POSTINGS WE WILL GET NOWT NOTHING ZULCH NIKS NEIN NO HELP WHAT SO EVER BUT THESE SO CALLED MPS GET EVERYTHING THEY WANT.

I AHVE SAID WE SHOULD HAVE A UNION FOR CARERS WHERE THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO FIGHT FOR REALISTIC CHANGE MONETARY AND SUPPORT WISE.
