Thank you very much for your patience. So clearly what is the issue is that the assessment has identified that your children need less hours funded by the local authority than you believe is necessary. That assessment is what you need to ask to be reviewed and as you have two other children who demand your time too the outcome should be fairer to you to give you some respite. There is no set hours that you should provide for your child but the carer's assessment must be thorough and must ensure that it covers what you wish and your well being too and to ensure that the child's well being is not compromised by giving less funding for care than is actually needed.
Any follow up please do not hesitate to send your message and I will be more than happy to guide you further. Thank you for contacting just answer. All the best.
You do not have to provide more than the hours that you can given your other commitments. You well being and that of your other 2 children is also crucial and you must appeal that decision.
