Make it easier to claim carer's allowance

The rules for someone claiming or trying to claim carer's allowance should be changed.

In order to claim carer's allowance, the carer has to meet all of four different criteria. If, for example, the only benefit that the person being cared for is state pension, Carer's Allowance cannot be claimed by the carer. What are Carer's supposed to live on?

At the end of the day, carers save this country millions of pounds and are totally ignored by the government.

I would like to the Government to change the rules in order to help carers.
