The State of Caring report shows the urgent need for action to improve support for carers. 40% of carers who took part in the survey want action on financial support to be the top priority for the Government, one in three want the Government to put social care support at the top of the ‘to do’ list.
“The Government must now listen to carers and seize the opportunity to make sure that, by 2020, carers have reason to feel optimistic about the future.”
Carers UK Chief Executive Heléna Herklots blogs about a new State of Caring 2015 report here.
