Carers allowance

Carers allowance

Raise the rate of carers allowance to at least the minimum wage if not the living wage.

Why is this important?

Carers have to guarantee they spend 35hrs a week looking after their loved ones. For this they get around £2 per hour. Well below the minimum wage, and the humiliation of maybe claiming income support. And if they work they can earn no more than £116.00

Carers save the country millions in nursing home costs. They should have the same rights as workers
