Carers UK’s 50 year history has seen us raising our voices in 12 General Elections, urging candidates and political parties to recognise carers’ and their families’ need for support. Our We care. Don't you? campaign calls on all political parties to:
- Stop cutting carers’ support
Carers need more help, not less – yet our families face cuts to vital care services and benefits.
- End carers’ financial hardship
Caring shouldn’t push families into financial crisis – we need urgent reform of carers’ benefits.
- Prevent carer breakdown
Health and care services must act to prevent carer ill-health and isolation.
