Hi everyone,

This is a post to let you know that we have decided to remove the EU referendum thread, and will be removing any other discussions on this topic that are not related to caring and are likely to create division, argument or offence.

The Carers UK Forum exists so anyone who is caring for a loved one has a welcoming place where they can get support, understanding and advice from other carers.

The debate about the EU referendum has reached the point where it is a clear distraction from the true purpose of the forum, and at times is actively undermining it. There are many places where you can debate political issues - online or otherwise. A supportive forum that anyone who is caring for a loved one can come to for support, understanding and friendship is far more rare, and needs to be protected.

And with limited volunteer and staff support, this discussion has become an unjustifiable drain on the forum, taking time away that could be spent welcoming new members and supporting people through the ups and downs of caring.
