Job centre interview while being a full time carer
Hello, please help!
I wanted to ask a question about carers allowance. I am 58 years old and care for my disabled daughter and receive the highest PIP level as she is physically and mentally very dependant, she is 18 and in full time education. Recently the job centre called me for an interview and the lady said I can start looking for work while my daughter is at school. I explained to her how strenuous it was for me to look after my daughter especially during the nights as she wakes up 5-6 times and needs changing nappies as well, so I cannot possibly work during the time she is at school. She pushed me and said that I could still find work and do deliveries etc and has called me after 3 months. This is really worrying me as I am in no position to work because I already care for my daughter, I also explained to her how my husband is also disabled and needs looking after during the day I cannot take on another job, but she said I could. please advise me as to what I can do in this matter? Can they force me to work? How long will they call me for these interviews? Regards, Sarah.
