New claim and statutory adoption pay

Hi there

My son has been awarded MRC on DLA - I’ve been on adoption leave (with another child) and I’m returning to work on 12 hours

Some questions

Can I Receive carers allowance whilst on adoption leave and receiving statutory adoption pay?

As I mentioned I’m returning to work soon for 12 hours a week (on minimum wage) but one of my first weeks I have to do 24 hours but everything else will then be 12 hours - how would this effect my claim for carers allowance

Any help or advice greatly received
