I picked this up from "kindheart" An E-Petiotion to the Prime ministers office (you may come across it on the news about car road proposed charging) on an increase for Carers Allowance. The petition will close on the 17 Feb for: “We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Increase Carers Allowance to better reward those who save the country money by their actions. The amount of Cares Allowance does not reflect the contribution in money terms made by the people who receive it. They save Nursing costs and Personal Care costs well in excess of the weekly amount which is at present just over £46 a week."

Why not copy this text and past into an email to send to your contact, only a couple of day left to petition.
