People caring for disabled family no longer have to be employed by the person they care for.

It's part of changes to Funded Family Care policy, which will allow partners to be paid to look after their disabled or ill loved ones.

The policy had required the person with high needs to employ their carer.

Newstalkzb's political editor Barry Soper told Andrew Dickens it's a more realistic way to cover a very difficult time.
