Money expert backs Carers Rights Day

04 December 2008

GMTV's money saving expert Martin Lewis has given his backing to Carers Rights Day.

Commenting on Carers UK's report, Carers in Crisis, released today, Martin said:

"How those who care for others are treated says a lot about a nation. The report sheds light on the fact that many overworked, unpaid carers in the UK are likely to be heavily impacted by the recession. It's very unpleasant to read about those who can't afford food, or are moving into mortgage arrears or building up debt, all due to caring for their loved ones.

Yet as well as a simple funding gap, part of the problem is balancing the books; reducing expenditure and sorting out the cash needs to be treated like a job of work too. In this not-so-pretty picture it's also worth remembering carers often take the burden of care away from the state, helping reduce the tax burden on the rest of us. Maybe it's time the favour was returned more strongly..."Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec lacus turpis, accumsan id elementum non, tristique nec purus.
