  • people who are being looked after in care homes;
  • people who have severe mental health impairment;
  • people staying in certain hostels or night shelters;
  • 18 year olds and 19 year olds who are at school, or have left school;
  • care workers working for low pay, usually for charities;
  • people caring for someone with a disability who is not a spouse, partner, or child under 18 years of age;
