Coalition of Carers Organisations NI supports Assembly motion on cessation of support services for carers

07 July 2020

It is estimated that up to 310,000 people in Northern Ireland may be providing unpaid care to a family member or loved one, including 98,000 people who have become carers since the COVID-19 outbreak began.

The Coalition of Carers Organisations NI supports the motion scheduled for debate today in the NI Assembly.

"This Assembly recognises the significant impact of COVID-19 on children and adults with a disability, the exceptional contribution of family carers further to the cessation of many statutory and non-statutory services and calls on the Minister of Health to produce a detailed plan for the resumption of services."
