‘Carer support charities are indispensable’

Sunday 03 April 2016

Dr Dan Poulter

Last week in Parliament I hosted an event to launch a campaign to raise awareness about child carers.

Honeypot, a children’s charity which gives respite care for carers aged five to 12, launched their campaign For Children Who Care to encourage MPs to recognise the challenges faced by young carers and to raise awareness of the need for respite care and to support organisations such as Honeypot.

Honeypot is the only UK charity providing consistent and regular support to young carers between the ages of five and 12.

Young carers face significant responsibilities and often find it difficult to relate to their peers, concentrate in school and play with their friends.

Honeypot offers these children a safe place where they can simply be children, in a supportive, safe environment.
