    Hello

    My name is maria and I work with The Benefits training Co.  We work with scope. 

    If I am reading your post correctly you get high rate mobility and high rate care of DLA.  If this is the case, it looks like your daughter can claim Carers Allowance.  However, there are many rules to claim carers allowance and these are explained on the Scope home page website, under Get information, benefits and Grants. This page also gives you a link to claim Carers Allowance.

    Good luck
