Increase the allowance for carers of higher rate disability benefit claimants

Petition Details

Increase financial support through Carer's Allowance for carers providing care to those whose disabilities mean they have a greater need for a greater level of care.

Additional Information

There are higher rates of award associated with disability benefits such as the Personal Independence Rate. The higher rate is awarded to a person depending on the assessment scores received if their disability has a bigger impact on a person and the extent of care they require.

If the person being cared for is receiving the higher rate of a disability benefit, the rate of Carer's Allowance for their carer should be increased to reflect the enhanced level of care and time required to care for them.
