Financial help for my daughter
Hi, l have a 22yr old daughter who lives with me, she suffers from anxiety, panic attacks, depression and self harm on occasion. She tries to attend a music academy but is not very successful as she finds it hard to travel on public transport. I don't get any financial help or practical help for her. I am registered has her carer but because she as not diagnosis (still waiting for appt) I've been told i can't claim carers allowance. We tried PIP and they said she didn't qualify. I am on state pension, and it is a struggle every week to make ends meet.
