Carers’ one off payments

“Carers are the bedrock” is the official slogan but should be changed to Carers are a pain in the neck as, from my experience, the system operators appear to be treating all Carers with a total disregard.

Since applying for an allowance in May this year, now five months later I am still waiting. If carers are entitled to an annual allowance,why should they have to be begging for it. Let’s all be grownups and act responsibly with dignity and respect to each other and send me the money.

Ageing Better | Drive to increase volunteering and community activity by people over 50

The Centre for Ageing Better will lead a review in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport into how to enable more people aged 50 and over to contribute their time, skills and experience to their communities.

The review will focus particularly on how to increase voluntary and community activity among underrepresented groups, such as people on low incomes and those with long-term health conditions. Older people in these groups can face particular challenges to taking part, and the review will explore how best to tackle these barriers.
