Paul and Susan’s 13-year-old disabled grandson, who lives with them, needs 24-hour care by at least two people. Two paid workers stay overnight at least twice a week in the adapted, three-bedroom bungalow, enabling Paul and Susan to sleep. But as a result of the bedroom tax, the family is judged to be under-occupying their home. While they are receiving a discretionary housing payment to make up the shortfall, this has to be reapplied for every year, with no guarantee of an award. A judicial review to extend existing exemptions to disabled children found against them and their solicitor says, “Paul and Sue work round the clock to care for Warren and have the constant fear hanging over them that Warren might lose his home and have to go into care.”
