Carers allowence and universal credits
hi, I was working but I have to finish to care for my gran. I get £64 a week carers and I’ve recently found out about universal credits and I get £94 a month from that. For some reason this doesn’t seem accurate. My petrol to get to my grans every day takes up my weekly cost and the monthly uc is £94 so that doesn’t last long at all. I’m unsure if there’s anything else’s I could do for help, a friend was doing the same as me and was able to get a lot more than me
