Unpaid carers can’t keep on plugging gaps in the NHS and social care

The Care Act, which came into force in April 2015, for the first time puts unpaid carers on an equal footing with those they care for. The Care Act: One Year On Commission will be holding hearings, calling for evidence and listening to carers of all ages.The commission is keen to obtain the views of as many carers as it can and asks them to complete a survey which can be accessed here.

Please complete this if you are an unpaid carer or pass the information onto to someone that you know who is an unpaid carer.

For more about this please see this article from The Guardian.
