No financial help with care at home.
I WRITE to highlight the plight of my son and many others. I am a life-time taxpayer and now find myself infirm. My son is my carer as I need constant help and he has been unemployed now for the better part of a year. The DWP in its great wisdom refuses to pay any assistance to him for all the help he gives me and refuses to reply to any of my letters.
It seems that for a lucky few it is easy to gain access to the social safety net but for others we are ignored and refused even the common decency of PS63 per week for more than 30 hours of unpaid careering. How can things be so bad that even the assistance of my MP has been unable to force the DWP to even reply to my letters with anything other then an automated response?
