The needs of carers

Unpaid carers make a huge contribution to the UK economy but their role is societally undervalued and under supported.

It’s been estimated that unpaid carers in the UK save the economy £132 billion pounds a year – more than the full cost of the NHS.

Yet, despite the enormity of their contribution, carers remain undervalued societally.

This session explores the landscape around caring in the UK and focuses on the additional burden on carers which has been created by the pandemic. It will also highlight the positive aspects of caring and, using examples from real life, will  identify important sources of support.
