Carers Allowance for working carers

I care for a family member who is disabled but I am penalised by the DWP due to be working to cover the costs of the monthly bills as I cannot afford to give up work.

I think it's totally unfair that I am not allowed to claim Carers Allowance even though I care for this person over the min recommended time set by the DWP but because I work I'm not intited to it as earn over the earring allowance to cover the cost of living.

Please join me by signing this to get the government to re-look at they way Carers Allowance can be paid to working carers.
