Carers week 2012

 Last month I met up in Parliament with presenter Fiona Phillips, to help raise awareness of Carers Week 2012 (18-24 June)

It is crucial that the UK’s six million unpaid carers are recognised for the contribution they make to those they care for, and to their communities.. The UK’s health and social care services simply could not function without the contribution of the unpaid care provided by families – which is estimated to be the equivalent of £119 billion a year.
