Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Just to be clear you are receiving payments for your mum to care for you and in reality she does not?
You are paid benefit for this, by the Council?
Is the sum allocated for your mum for certain hours worked?
When you applied, what did you declare?But in short you are receiving the money for hours which are not being worked?
So you can allocate it how you wish?
Well it depends. If its a budget that you can what you want with you are ok to a certain extent.
However if you are paying for work that is not being carried out and the payments you receive are designed to cover that, it could be fraud.
Therefore if someone isnt actually doing the hours claimed and you are receiving payments at the public expense, ie benefit/grant then it could be an issue.
You should really amend the payments going to this person helping you.
There is a risk that it is fraudulent, because work is being claimed that is not being carried out.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
