A Petition for a Carer’s Strategy

Katy Styles has been running a petition for there to be a Carers Strategy not a Carers Action Plan.

The Government has published a Carers Action Plan 2018-2020, which doesn’t go far enough to provide the right level of support for paid and unpaid carers.

With the Green Paper on Social Care delayed until the Autumn it is important for the Government to realise that 6.5m unpaid carers want action not a plan.

Local Authorities such as Bury, Leicestershire and Torbay are working on local strategies instead of plans, so why cannot there be a national one.

Please take the time to sign the petition, it only takes 2 minutes.

The Petition ended on 22nd July 2018.

Thank you
