Ways to make money
7

Theblackdogagain · 23/09/2022 18:50

So my husband has had to give up work to look after our disabled son, we thought it would be temporary but we're 6 months in and he still can't work. I work FT in a salary job.
What can we do to make money? I don't understand matched betting so not keen on that, I'm trying to sell stuff to make money. I'm already doing surveys and scanning my shopping fir vouchers.
What else can I do around work? DH is so tired and beaten down I don't want to stress him more than he is.

Are you claiming all you are entitled to? DLA/PIP, carers allowance, universal credit?
You can check on entitledto.co.uk

Yes my son gets DLP but we don't get carers allowance as we have savings and I'm trying to avoid using them as we need to do major works to the house to get it disabled friendly.

Is DH looking at every job, not just ones he wants to do?

Sorry, I didn’t read properly the first time. Could he do evening or weekend work or similar when you’re home?

Hi op. Even if you own your home you may be entitled to a grant for adaptions from your local authority. Look into it. I wish you all the best.X

Not what your asking but could you apply for a disability grant from the council for the house adaptions? Apply ASAP as there is often a long waiting list (took me two years but it was/is life changing that was for the adult grant).
