Government have announced details of a major consultation with carers over the National strategy for Carers. You can read more details about this on our news pages including a statement from Gordon Brown.

One way you can all make a start is by visiting the dedicated website www.newdealforcarers.org and post your ideas on the website. You can post a message, read what other people have said and say if you agree. The site will be live until mid September.

Don't forget that we also want all carers to send a message to Gordon Brown that Carers Allowance is just not good enough, you can do this through Carers UK's campaign "real change not short change". Details are here
