Carers Action Plan

The Carers Action Plan was launched on Tuesday 5 June, designed to deliver activity for carers across Government over the next two years ahead of the Green Paper on social care, due to be published this summer.

Carers UK has welcomed the Carers Action Plan and its positive short term measures to support carers but expressing disappointment that it lacks action to improve financial support.

Carers UK has submitted a great deal of evidence since the idea for a Carers Strategy was first announced by the Secretary of State for Health on 1 July 2015.

The Carers Action Plan is designed to deliver activity for carers across Government over the next two years ahead of the Green Paper on social care, due to be published this summer. The Action Plan is largely designed for carers in England, although there are measures that might impact positively on carers in other nations. Thousands of carers shared their experience to inform the development of this Action Plan, reflecting the strength of feeling among carers that much more support is needed.
