This At a glance briefing looks at benefit changes that can make it easier for service users and carers to get involved in paid participation for social care consultations and events. Barriers to involvement have been eased for service users and carers who are in receipt of state benefits. Service users and carers who are paid for involvement may be reimbursed out-of-pocket expenses without affecting their benefits.
