APPG on Carers call for a new National Carers Strategy 

The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Carers, which advocates on behalf of unpaid carers, has launched a report calling on all political parties to commit to developing a new National Carers Strategy after the General Election. 

The APPG say: 

“Since the end of the Carers Action Plan 2018-2020, there has not been a dedicated cross-Government approach to supporting unpaid carers, and it has been 16 years since the last Carers Strategy was published by UK Government in 2008.  

The development of a new National Carers Strategy should be a priority for the next Government. It would help millions of carers to continue caring for their family and friends while protecting their health, work, and wellbeing.”
