I’m new around here and sorry I can’t find the answer on the search.
Firstly, does anyone know the general time turnaround these days when applying for carers allowance please? It’s been about 3 and a half weeks and i’ve not heard anything yet.
Secondly, this seems a grey area. I am on Universal Credit. My partner had a stroke in Dec which has caused him to not be able to work at the moment (I work part time). We are waiting or him to have a work capability assessment (sent the forms back in Feb) and still waiting like a lot of people. I think I read somewhere if one of us is in receipt of carers allowance that we are able to claim help with childcare costs. Does anyone know please?
