    Consultation on Universal Credit

    15 May 2011

    Carers Northern Ireland's response gives a cautious welcome to some of the key principles in the White Paper, which could deliver a simpler, less complex benefits system for disabled people and their families. However we are disappointed that the Government did not take this opportunity to reform Carers Allowance.

    Bill of Rights response

    10 December 2010

    Carers Northern Ireland supports a strong and inclusive Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland. We are disappointed by the proposals in the current NIO consultation document. We are concerned that the current proposals for a Bill of Rights will not adequately protect the human rights of carers, particularly where those rights conflict with the needs and desires of the person that they care for, or with the interests of the state.

    Census 2011

    04 August 2010

    The 2001 Census was the first Census to include a question on carers. The 2011 Census will therefore provide the first ever opportunity for comparative data on changes in the caring population over a 10 year period. It is Carers Northern Ireland's view that it is essential to include a question in the 2011Census to measure the impact of an ageing population on the number and nature of carers.
