Unpaid carers missing out on vital support

Anyone who helps to look after a loved one is a carer, but many people do not recognise this, and so are missing out on vital support. The latest research from Carers UK shows that it’a not just the carers themselves who don’t recognise their role, it’s other family members, friends and colleagues: more than half (51%) of the people questioned believe they ‘don’t know’ a single friend or family member, looking after a loved one, despite 1 in 10 people in the UK being carers. You can read the research on the Carers UK website.
