Hi, my name is oldmum!
My son suffered a shattered pelvis 6 weeks ago. His surgeon told us he will never be able to go back to his job as a chef, and the restaurant he worked at and I owned has had to close. We are being told that he cannot claim any disability benefits until 3 months is up and that includes carers allowance, I am 70 but was working as a fosterparnt and earning £400 a week, I can no longer do that. Can we really get no help until after 3 months.
