Dr Moira Fraser, interim chief executive of Carers Trust, the UK’s largest charity for carers, said:

“Unpaid carers depend on high quality care for the person with care needs so that they can take a break. They therefore need to feel confident that care workers who provide additional support in their homes, are well trained and supported, know them and their needs and are paid appropriately for their time.

“The Burstow Commission’s Key to Care report is timely and will help towards developing  a high quality, appropriately supported care workforce”
