Tax credits and Carers in the most straight forward of the lot and far easier than DLA so you should find this a little easier.
Please feel free to use our benefit caculator and this should give you an indication of what you can expect from tax credits.
The benefit caculator can be found on the following link:

Im glad you found the website and got involved as it can be hard to seek help and support when things are so new to your family.

There comes a point in your life when you realize:Who matters,Who never did,Who won't anymore...And who always will..
So, don't worry about people from your past,there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
