The Department of Health and Social Care has today released guidance for people providing unpaid care to family or friends.
The Children’s Minister, Edward Timpson, today told Parliament that the Government intends to change the law to improve rights for young carers.
The findings from the report, Prepared to Care? show that support is not being made available to new carers with often devastating consequences.
You can help make sure that the Government and as many MPs as possible understand why it is important that the law is changed to improve young carers' rights.
We welcomed details of The Care and Support Bill, including the creation of new duties to assess and meet the needs of adult carers.
