Report on lack of support for carers

The findings from this report show that support is not being made available to new carers with often devastating consequences.

It outlines the emotional, physical and financial effects that caring can have as people are not prepared for the impact of the role. The report highlights the need for greater support for carers including better access to information, flexible working practices and financial support in a fair and easy to navigate welfare system.
