All Party Parliamentary Group on Carers

*As Parliament has dissolved during the general election and until new Members of Parliament are elected the APPG on Carers has suspended activity*

Set up in 2005, the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Carers is made up of MPs and Peers who care passionately about ensuring the 6.5 million people in the UK who provide unpaid care for ill, older or disabled loved ones get the support they need.


The Group brings together Parliamentarians from across the political spectrum to promote awareness, share knowledge, and understanding of the needs of unpaid carers in Parliament.

The APPG works on a cross-party basis to seek improvements to legislation for carers, while providing a forum for Parliamentarians and expert stakeholders to discuss what more can be done across the NHS, social care, employment policy and the social security system to improve the lives of carers. The Group meets several times a year.

Co-Chairs: Rt Hon. Alistair Burt MP and Baroness Jill Pitkeathley

Vice Chairs: Alex Cunningham MP, Mims Davies MP, Jack Dromey MP, Baroness Lister of Burtersett, Caroline Lucas MP, Dr Dan Poulter MP, Angela Rayner MP, Baroness Tyler of Enfield,  Dr Eilidh Whiteford MP
