For the Government to acknowledge the financial and emotional sacrifice of unpaid carers

This petition had 10,927 supporters


It is high time the Government respected the huge financial and emotional contribution unpaid carers make in the UK. Carers are physically and emotionally drained, they are isolated and lonely and they feel undervalued and under-respected. 

You pay these carers £62.70 a week in carers allowance yet they save the UK Government £132 billion annually.
