Carers’ Bonus Payment In Doubt

// March 10th, 2008 // Disability

I was very surprised to read in the paper yesterday that the Rudd Labor Government is considering scrapping the $1600 bonus that is paid annually to people caring for sick and disabled Australians (including our little Archie!)

This money is used by people for all sorts of wonderful, necessary and useful things for their dependents. We were going to use ours for respite care for Archie.

Please if you have a moment, sign the petition on the Daily Telegraph website: Caring for carers | The Daily Telegraph

    It is very surprising indeed to hear of this… a real shock in fact. Let’s get this one signed, sealed and deliver the message for Archie and so many others. xxoo

    thanks for that link Ant. What a turnaround. I love Abbott saying the John Howard govt will be looked on as a ‘golden age of compassion’… errr what?
