Hi!

I know how stressful these times have been on everyone but I also know the parents who are on carers Payment and/or allowance must be feeling this stress also!

On top of everyday food and essentials prices going up, we are also needing to keep up our children’s specialists appointment up (which now are non-rebatable due to telehealth) in order to provide our children with the best care possible especially during these stressful times! Just some of these appointments are: paediatrician, psychologist, speech therapy, occupational therapy etc. 

I completely understand some single parents work and have been affected by loss of jobs or reduced hours so they are entitled to the government $550 fortnightly supplement, but carers also work and have lost jobs or have had to reduce hours as well but yet are not entitled to the supplement. 

There are also some single parents that don’t work so therefore payments have not been affected yet they are to receive the supplement. 

As a community, we should all be included as in some shape or form, we are all suffering!

So please reconsider this decision as this is to help those carers who are suffering right now to receive some help also!
