I'm really sorry for derailing your thread OP! Wasn't my intention
I receive the carers allowance x2 and carers payment for my two kids. Both have a severe hearing impairment and speech delay, my son has a heat condition and allergies and my daughter is going through lots of developmental testing at the moment.
We got knocked back a few times for the payment but we just kept applying and finally got a fantastic social worker who really helped me answer all the questions. Like a previous poster said I was down playing a lot. You really need to put your carers hat on and take your mum hat off.
Good luck to everyone applying!
