Closed petition Make Carers Allowance equivalent to a fair wage & allow multiple claims

Make carers allowance equivalent to a fair wage and allow multiple carers allowance (with a limit) where more than 1 person is cared for.

More details

For example, a family with 2 disabled children affects a parent being able to work part-time or full-time but current rules of claiming for 1 cared person does not cover the carer financially.

Carers are grossly underpaid and the system does not recognised when a carer cares for more than one person.
