Good afternoon,

I am looking a new job (part time one day a week) but the locations Is Windsor and parking is £3.70 a hour. So for the day it will cost me over £30
I’ve always worked whilst caring but never had any expenses before so I just wondered can parking classed as a expense?
will I be able to claim it back etc?
I remember seeing something about childcare but I can’t remember another expense your allowed to put through whist claiming carers allowance.
I’ve tried phoning carers allowance quite a few times but been in a queue for over an hour so had to hang up due to mother needing me.
I just didn’t want to accept the job and then be in a situation where I’m hardly earning anything because of petrol and parking prices.

Thank you in advance for any help
kind regards
