Work and benefits--how do I determine what I can work without losing out on needed support?
My husband has CP and requires someone to be at home with him 24/7. He receives all the usual benefits, and I'd love to be able to make some extra money for us. I can only work part-time, but I don't want to do anything that would affect our current financial situation seeing as I am also his full-time carer. I am unable to receive any public funds due to my immigration status, so this also puts a strain on us. Has anyone else had this struggle? What do I do?
