Covid uplift U/C and non residential care charges

Hi, first post on this site.
As soon as my son received his £20 uplift in his U/C, the local council reassessed his contribution to his D/P care. They took the whole uplift each month. Now that it has finished I requested a reassessment and it’s dropped back down. Did this happen to everyone? What was the point in him receiving it! I thought it was supposed to support the extra costs during the pandemic!

    Welcome to the community @caseslot :) Thanks for joining.

    I'm not quite sure of the answer to your question yet, and I can't currently recall anyone else posting about this, so I've marked your post as unanswered so that we can come back to it. My comment here will also 'bump' your post back up, in case anyone else has experienced this.
