"Government to provide extra 'employment help' to carers"
Tue 08-Dec-09 05:30 PM

Is there any reason (apart from the country's bankruptcy) why the government cannot allow WTC for carers at 16 hours? I seem to remember that HMRC were meant to be looking at the issue years ago.

Aside from receipt of Carers Allowance I guess the main issue would be deciding the criteria to alow a carer to claim at 16 hours, but such a concession would many allow carers to cut hours - where this was possible - instead of giving up work altogether.
