The COVID 19 pandemic has resulted in a tsunami of unmet home care demands, this impacts many lives and has created a huge increase in the need for unpaid carers across the UK. The fear of our loved ones contracting the virus and having to isolate puts even more pressure on families.
Did you know four in five unpaid carers are now providing more care for relatives?
Carers Rights Day is a national campaign bringing organisations together to help unpaid carers understand their rights and provide help to find out how to get the support they are entitled to. Help is available to new carers and to those caring for someone for some time.
Carers UK provides information and support for carers, find out more here:
