“Significant victory for carers”

Wednesday 27th January

On 26 January, the Government announced it will change the law to exempt all carers in receipt of Carer’s Allowance from the benefit cap.

Since the benefit cap was introduced in 2010, Carer's UK has campaigned to remove the law and stop carers' from being unfairly penalised.

This change in the law is excellent news for carers and carers' rights. Find out what Carers UK said about the “significant victory for carers” here.
