    First port of call .... your LA.

    Carers Assessment through their SS section.

    I assume that both you and your son receive all benefits / allowances currently payable ?

    Under the old system or through Universal Credit ?

    GP practice ... dedicated carers point of contact therein ?

    As for your son , have you made contact with his specific supporting organisation for guidance and advice ?

    Just a few observations to point you in the right direction.
