I’m disabled and have a 30 yr old son with CP. my husband is carer. We have 9 pieces of equipment in his room which has to be on. I just don’t know how we can do it. Is there any help out there?

    There were some cost of living payments for those claiming certain means tested benefits and also £150 for those claiming disability benefits such as PIP/DLA or AA, did you receive any of those?
    There's also the energy rebate of £66/67 per month between Oct to March. Have a look on your energy suppliers website to see if there's any other support they maybe offering.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
