Carers UK and Carers Trust have made a joint statement regarding the coronavirus – or COVID-19.

This joint statement covers an overview of the current advice for people who are providing unpaid care. 

We also set out what we believe services should be planning and preparing, making sure that everyone from Government, to the NHS, to social care understand the role that unpaid carers play in society; how they should be adequately accounted for in planning and supported.

Whilst we can advise carers, they are also concerned with the ‘what if?’. We raise their questions in this document.
