To all Carers please take a few minutes to go the the Carers UK site and add your name to this campaign, thanks. Sorry I don't know how to do a link!




Send a message to Parliament: We Care. Don't You?

The General Election is less than ten months away and we want to show the Government and all MPs that they cannot ignore carers.

As the next step in our We Care. Don’t You? campaign, the letter below, signed by the UK’s carers, will be sent to every MP – giving a clear message to Parliament that enough is enough.

Both carers and former carers (people for whom caring has come to an end) can sign the letter.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The letter

Dear Member of Parliament,

There are 6.5 million carers in the UK. We provide essential unpaid care and support to ill, older or disabled relatives and friends who depend on us.

We are writing to you today to say that even though many of us were struggling already, our lives are being made harder.

Some of us get limited help; many of us care alone. Yet in many parts of the country, already inadequate social care support is now being cut – leaving many carers without breaks from caring, time to look after ourselves or have lives of our own.

Carers face high costs as a result of caring and are at risk of debt and financial hardship – millions of us have been forced to give up work to care. Yet cuts to carers’ benefits will reach £1 billion by 2018.

Sometimes we feel like we cannot carry on. If we did stop caring, it would cost the Government £326 million a day – £119 billion a year.

But carers can’t stop, we can’t go on strike and we can’t all travel to London to protest outside Downing Street. Our loved ones need us. The NHS and social care services would collapse without the care we provide.

If we could march on Parliament today, we would tell you this: carers are being let down.

With a UK election next year, we are asking you to take action in Parliament and locally to:

Stop cutting carers’ support
Carers need more help, not less – yet our families face cuts to vital care services and benefits.

End carers’ financial hardship
Caring shouldn’t push families into financial crisis – we need urgent reform of carers’ benefits.

Prevent carer breakdown
Health and care services must act to prevent carer ill-health and isolation.

Show us you care, by speaking up for carers in Parliament and calling on your party to pledge to support carers in your manifesto and at the election.

Yours faithfully,

……........
