Use bus lane fines to ease “poverty” of unpaid carers, campaigner says
Ease “poverty” of unpaid carers
A wounded military veteran’s daughter has claimed unpaid carers are being forced to skimp on food and heating because they get no help with transport costs.
Faith-Jason Robertson-Foy wants Aberdeen bus lane fine revenues used to subsidise cheap fares for those looking after family and friends.
But she says politicians and social care chiefs have failed to act because they don’t understand the poverty faced by many people in her position.
