Just checked out both FaceAche and Parrot House ... Facebook and Twitter.

Traffic / postings ... mirror image what we have all seen on the forum.

A country lane ... on a Sunday ... winter time ... with well known road works in course.

One tweet summoned up the reality for carers very aptly :
Carer poverty is increasing - as the benefit system is devastated; as care charges increase exponentially, as carers are forced to leave work to care, many find themselves struggling to afford the basic and subsidising care costs and paying for equipment.

Not to mention ... eat / heat / roof on top of that ?

Diarise forward to next year's Carers Week.
