Carers Allowance Reform and overpayments


Recommended Posts


Sign carersUK petition on Carer's Allowance reform and overpayments

In response to parliamentary questions we asked Margaret Greenwood MP to table, the Government released new data last Friday showing it was attempting to recoup Carer’s Allowance overpayments from 156,000 unpaid carers, with around 11,600 of these carers involving carers with debts of over £5,000.

This is simply unacceptable and urgent action is now required.

To help raise awareness of the issue, we have today launched a new petition calling on the Government to urgently review and reform Carer's Allowance, to increase the financial support available to carers and to reduce overpayments.

Sign petition here:

Just like the Post Office fiasco, another scandal inflicted on people looking after loved ones. Roll on May 2nd elections.
