Attendance Allowance consultation

NAWRA has submitted a response to the ‘Self-sufficient local government: 100% business rates retention’ consultation voicing our concern at the proposal that Attendance Allowance would no longer be a cash benefit in England and Wales if responsibility for it transfers from the DWP to each local authority’s social care budget.

Our submission is available here.

Thanks to our North-East representative, Julie Henry (Durham County Council), for drafting it.
