Went to a careers meeting yesterday, and we were informed that a new careers act came in last April, where careers can be assessed, and there is a new benefit, that you can get, which is paid to you in a lump sum, for example if you need a gardener, window cleaner, cleaner, it is not means tested, it is for the career, you can pay for someone to sit with, the person you are looking after, so you can get some time to yourself. At last the government have realised what we do, and how much money we are saving them. I was never told about this, by my old social worker, has anybody else heard of the new law? Yvonne xxxxxx
