Time to reward carers
This petition had 351 supporters
Thousands of people in England and Wales provide 35 hours care per week for £62.70 per week. This compares with JSA payments of £73.10 to those on job seekers' allowance.
Many carers are unable to work and face significant financial difficulties. With increasing numbers of people in need of care, and recruitment difficulties faced by professional care providers, it's time for Government to recognise the work undertaken by carers a home.
A starting point would be to raise carer's allowance to match JSA of £73.10 per week.
