Treat Carers Better.

To: Iain Duncan Smith, Secretary of State of Work and Pensions.Jeremy Corbyn Leader of the Labour Party, Tim Farron Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

We want better financial and pastoral support for all carers, regardless of age, and working status.
Why is this important?

Carers save the country an estimated £119 Billion pounds a year, and yet achieve no recognition for their work. Like myself a full time carer for my wife most carers are unable to escape the stresses of placed on us by the continuous need to be on duty 24/7 and the assistance provided by GPs Social Services and Charities, is severely limited by the cuts inflicted by this government.
