we had an obscure letter that i dont understand but it said, if one person over 18 or over gets carers allownace aND ANOTHER GETS dla HIGHER RRATE, IF i COULKD DISREGARD MY nIGEL THEN I WOULD GET 25% DISCOUNT
I think there's two types of council tax discount. The one where a room in your house is adapted for the disabled person and for their SOLE use (we get that atm, haven't told them its no longer the case ) and there's something called something like Disabled Discount. I think they're different anyway.... I saw some info on the second one in a newsletter. Carers UK would be able to tell you.
Jimjams, will you tell them when you stop doing ABA and using the room for that? I reckon I could make a case for the room being for teaching materials, files etc and it has to be locked at the moment, but its not the same as when they awarded the discount......
I probably will Davros- I need to decide soon as we finished yesterday I may try and find someone else so I won't tell them yet- I don't feel guilty about it as it still has all the sensory stuff cluttering it up, and the files and anyway it took them ages to give us a discount so I fugure they owe us time iyswim.
