Pay carers an allowance equivalent to a fulltime job at the National Living wage
Paying unpaid carers would safeguard those requiring care making it a financially viable option for friends and family to look after those they love, Reducing pressure on 999 services and the NHS. Saving vast amounts of money per person. The carer who provides continuity in care is often forgotten
As a former informal carer I can testify that it is more than a full time job and the financial and emotional is immeasurable .
The current amount a carer recieves a week is £62.70. Which is a National Disgrace.
