Wendy Chamberlain MP visits Lanarkshire Carers Centre to celebrate passing of Carer’s Leaver Act

Carers Trust is delighted that Wendy Chamberlain, Liberal Democrat MP for North East Fife, visited Carers Trust’s Network Partner, Lanarkshire Carers Centre this week.

During her visit, Wendy Chamberlain was able to discuss her Carer’s Leave Act which gained Royal Assent last Thursday. The Act gives employees across Great Britain the right to take unpaid leave from work to care for older, disabled or seriously ill relatives or friends.

The Carer’s Leave Act 2023 will ensure that the estimated two million employees currently juggling paid employment and caring responsibilities can take up to five days of unpaid Carer’s Leave to support their loved ones.

The visit also provided an opportunity to discuss the recent award of Exemplary status as a Carer Positive employer to Lanarkshire Carers Centre. The award recognises the creative and innovative approaches to supporting and involving carers employed by Lanarkshire Carers.
