All about money

Victor, has someone challenged your entitlement to Carers Allowance?
It was the Care Coordinator. She removed me - by being sly - giving me the impression I was still part of the care.
What do you mean by "she removed me?" Tell us what is going on. The benefits you claim are nothing to do with a social worker!
Just read your other post. Make a formal complaint to both the coordinators employer and DWP. And explain that you ARE caring and do qualify and want it reinstated immediately.
Complain about her

Far from that. I’m a carer for my disabled son and I certainly do not talk to him for five hours. We are in the early stages of applying for DLA. I just filled out the form today and will send it off via secure recorded delivery tomorrow at the post office in town.

The money can be used for anything that benefits the disabled person. For some this includes a carer who comes while for others it means money spent on specialised equipment.

Examples of services include:

Gardening
Shopping
Cooking
Finding work
Learning new skills
Ironing
Money skills
Bathing
Taking medication
Accessing the community
Travel training
Making friends
Washing
Cleaning


Ring to complain tomorrow first thing. She is unpleasant.
