Carers Wales Summit 2021

25 August 2021

At a time when all sections of society have been under strain due to the COVID-19 pandemic, unpaid carers have faced additional and substantial burdens. Many have been shielding with those they love at the same time as the services, which they would normally rely on for support, were completely withdrawn or reduced as restrictions came into force.

As part of our Welsh Government funded work, Carers Wales hosted an online summit of unpaid carers over two consecutive mornings in March 2021, almost a year to the date of the first lockdown. It focussed on gathering information and feedback on how the pandemic had impacted the lives of carers and the ongoing challenges they face.
The summit also considered what carers want and need and their key priorities for policy makers and service providers in post-covid recovery.
