Disabled: Carers’ Benefits

Volume 485: debated on Monday 8 December 2008

To ask the Minister for Women and Equality with reference to paragraph 3.11 of the Carers at the Heart of 21st Century Families and Communities report, how much of the £150 million funding for breaks for carers of disabled children will be provided by the Government Equalities Office over each of the next two years. (240813)

The £150 million fund will be provided entirely by the Department of Health and will increase the support available for all carers, not just those that care for disabled children.
