The Department of Health and Social Care has today released guidance for people providing unpaid care to family or friends.
The Children and Families Bill is a significant opportunity to improve the lives of young carers.
We are inviting any person who cares for someone with dementia to complete our survey — part of a new research project to help us understand this group’s needs and improve future services for them.

ONS statistics revealed that the number of unpaid carers in England and Wales alone has reached 5.8 million — a rise of 600,000 since 2001.
