Cloverleaf joins Carers UK and over 70 organisations to urge the Government to act for unpaid carers
Cloverleaf Advocacy has joined Carers UK and over 70 other organisations urging the Government, and Chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng, to act for unpaid carers amid the current cost-of-living crisis.
National Charity, Carers UK, delivered a letter to the new Chancellor, urging him to tackle the increased financial burden that unpaid carers are facing. Many family members and friends provide free round-the-clock care and support for loved ones and are unable to cut back on the associated costs needed to provide this vital care, such as medication and specialist equipment.
The letter sets out the extreme financial challenges faced by unpaid carers and has the support of the general public, with over 84% in agreement that the Government should provide unpaid carers with additional support.
