Carers Week campaign for a recovery and respite plan for unpaid carers

The Carers Week website announced a plan to campaign for respite for unpaid carers after the pandemic.

They said “Carers Week 2022 comes following an extraordinary two and a half years for unpaid carers, who have faced unprecedented pressures throughout the pandemic. Please join us in calling on the government to develop a Recovery and Respite Plan for unpaid carers, to ensure all carers get the support they need.”

One practical thing to support this campaign is to write a letter to your MP


The Carers Week website has prepared a letter template to make it easier to write and send a letter to your MP and say “This Carers Week, Carers UK and the other charities involved this year are calling for the UK Government to publish a Recovery and Respite Plan for unpaid carers – outlining additional support for carers across a range of areas, including: breaks, respite and care services, infection control, identification of carers, financial help, and support to help people juggle work alongside their caring responsibilities.”
