Will I still be entitled

Hi, my son (19 years old) gets pip and I get carers allowance for him.  My hubbie is a employed builder and a opportunity has come up for my son to do a couple days a week on site (lugging stuff to a skip etc, very manual) for a few weeks but only if he goes self employed.  If he does this will I still be entitled to carers allowance?  I've had a look at the 'changes you must tell us about' and can't see anything there about telling them this kind of thing...I just want to make sure I do everything properly.
(Nothing that he will be doing will undermine any of the reasons he gets pip.  He was in the middle of renewing it when lockdown happened, so it has been extended until march next year)

    HI and welcome,

    Your son working will not have anything at all to do with your carers allowance claim, this is your claim based on your personal circumstances.
