posted in Chat too.
someone coming tomoz to talk about welfare reforms.

me; fulltime carer (with disabilities) for DC (168 hour week)
DC-LIFELONG disabilities and needs LIFELONG care.
hit with council tax.
hit with bedroom tax (trying in vain to move house)

homeschooling as no suitable schools able to cope/cater for dc, saving gov £19.000 a year.

no mobility help for either of us.

no money gone in account this week, have £85.00 in the whole world.

how the hack is anyone going to say even more sh** to be piled on?

anyone getting this?

know there are loads of people in similar situations. any advice? please?

thanx. just annoyed it affects carers too. the lack of support already and yet more piled on.

not fair on anyone at all.

I am in a complicating caring situation too. You might be able to get help from the discretionary housing fund if you are hit with the bedroom tax, perhaps worth asking the person coming tomorrow?

Hope it goes ok.
