Expenditure Review of Carers allowance


Print page

This review considers the purpose and development of the scheme, both in terms of its current operation and in the wider context of health care provision. It also examines the potential for the development of provision for carers through the social insurance system and the role of the private sector. A fundamental issue which the review addresses is the role of the Allowance as an income maintenance payment as opposed to a payment for caring. The review also highlights other areas requiring further examination which are outside the scope of this report.
