Increase Carers Allowance in line with the Living Wage
To receive Carers Allowance from the Government carers need to care for the disabled (at a predetermined level of need) for AT LEAST 35 hours a week. For this they receive less than £2 an hour to help them do this. Sign if you think this should be increased in line with the living wage.
Carers Allowance is also taxable so carers have to pay for all their own dental treatment, prescriptions etc too. 2016 also saw no increase in the level of Carers Allowance.
