Client is a female, lone parent aged 34. She has 3 daughters, two still living at home. She is a carer for her youngest daughter who is in receipt of DLA. She lives in private rented accommodation and receives Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit and Income Support. We helped the client to claim Carers Allowance, and discretionary housing payments. After we contacted the client to find out if her claims were successful we further helped with a Housing Benefit appeal and she has since received a one off backdated HB payment of £290, ongoing Carers Allowance £1664 per year and a one off discretionary housing payments of £560.
