Radio appeal for funding to help Unpaid Carers!

Hi to all Carers

Listening to the radio one day this week, I heard who I believe to be Alexie Sayle, making an appeal for funds to help Unpaid Carer's, stating that many are at breaking point due to not receiving any help!

There are many Carer's like myself who have cared for many years with very little and no help, as our Council are always complaining that they don't have the funds and now they are using Covid to conserve any funds that they may have or wasting taxpayers money as they always have done! As you can see I do not trust the Council with our money and many people in the area where I live complain about them all of the time!

As I have said before, no one cares for unpaid Carer's and it's disgraceful that we are ignored whilst saving the tax payer billions of pounds each year!!!!

What I find frustrating, is that there are many charities out there, some much bigger than others, who don't seem to campaign for help for all of us to take at least one break a year/meaning a one off payment per year to every family who cares unpaid so that they can at least take one big break or many short ones to help them to cope without burning out as I and many other Carer's do!
I think it's appalling that unpaid carer's r not a priority for the covid vaccine when we get very little support & save the government millions of pounds every year. We should be a priority like all other paid carer's. This needs addressing asap.
Caresr are being catered for ....
