Attendance Allowance - what does it mean to you?

Hi all,

The Government announced shortly before Christmas that it was planning to devolve Attendance Allowance to local authorities in future. This will not impact you if you currently receive it, so don't worry!

We'll soon have an opportunity to offer our views on the proposals, and it would be fantastic to hear your experience of claiming Attendance Allowance, and what it means to you, to help us make our response.

I wondered -

  • How does Attendance Allowance help you and your loved ones?
  • What does it help you pay for?
  • Is the money enough?
  • What would you do without Attendance Allowance?

Any thoughts and input would be really helpful!
