14 June 2010
Jane Dearden, chair of Carers UK's branch in St. Helens, has been awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday honours list in recognition of her services to the community in St. Helens.

Under Jane's leadership the St Helens branch of Carers UK have been tireless campaigners on behalf of carers. Their many achievements include the setting up of a Carers Centre in St Helens and they have been instrumental in pressing for services to improve the lives of carers.

Gavin Macgregor, Carers UK's Head of Communications and Development said "Jane is well known across the whole of North West England as an advocate for carers and we are delighted that Jane's hard work for carers has been recognised. This award also highlights the vital role that Carers UK's branches play in many communities across the UK."
