Confused about Carer's Allowance?

Friday 19th July 2019

As a parent carer you probably already know that it costs more to raise a child with additional needs. This means getting the right financial help can make a real difference to you and your family.

Carer's Allowance is the main benefit for carers and is there to help you care for your child - but it can be confusing to understand.

That's why we'd like to invite you to a special Q&A session focusing on Carer's Allowance on 25 July between 2-5pm on our Facebook page where you can ask our parent advisers any questions you may have about this important benefit.

If you want to know more about whether you qualify for Carer's Allowance, how to claim it or you are worried about whether you can still work and receive Carer's Allowance - you can put your questions to our team on Facebook on 25 July between 2-5pm when they'll be waiting to answer your questions.

Can't make the 25 July?
