Thanks very much yes it does help, I think I may well fill in the forms then. Did you have to go and see anyone or was you awarded the money once you filled in the forms?
when i filled it out with ~(support) it took a while for them to assess my needs by looking at paperwork and speaking to health professionals that i listed.
also they didnt give me much money until the finance intervened and said that i should be getting more so it were reviewed.
i didnt need to be seen by person

If your husband is on a low income you maybe entitled to Income Support or Working Tax Credit.
It is worth considering that if you claim Income Support I think you maybe entitled to Legal Help/Legal Aid and you maybe able to get all independent reports carried out under that scheme for free. That is worth considering as otherwise it can cost £000's. If you feel you may need those reports, it is worth finding out if you would be able to get them if you were on Income Support.
If your husband can claim Working Tax Credit then you also claim the 'Disabled Child' element which is considerable (a couple of thousand pounds a year). But if you get Working Tax Credit/Child Tax Credit, then you are not eligible for Legal Help/Legal aid.
As you get carers allowance, do you also claim council tax benefit, because you would be entitled to it and that would save you alot off your council tax bill.
