    Smile Severely disable children to be exempted from bedroom tax

    Parents with severely disabled children who are unable to share a room with their siblings are to be exempt from the Government’s under-occupation penalty, or so-called bedroom tax.

    Ministers will publish guidance to local authorities today which will allow them to exclude families with disabled children from the reduction in benefits for having a spare room, which is due to come into effect next month. Exemptions will only apply in relation to certain disabilities

    And now also foster Carers are exempt as are parents of adult children serving in the armed forces. Now the Government should add those Carers who care for a disabled adult relative at home from the bedroom tax.
