EDM number 740 in 2009-10, proposed by Bob Spink on 27/01/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Sickness, disability and carers' benefits.

That this House congratulates the six million people in the UK who provide unpaid help, care and support to a relative or friend who has an illness or disability; notes the huge contribution that carers make, many of whom are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks of the year and often unrecognised by society, communities and sometimes within carers' own families; further notes that as a consequence of this lack of recognition carers go without the support they need; further notes that many carers, such as students and carers aged over 65, are ineligible for support and that almost two million disabled people over 65 years receive no state-funded care and rely on informal care, and that this figure is set to grow to 2.6 million by 2022; thanks Counsel and Care, Carers UK and Help the Aged for their work to get the right deal for carers; is concerned that three quarters of local authorities only provide care to people whose needs are critical or substantial; and calls on the Government to review carer and benefits policy to ensure that vulnerable people get the care they need and are not at risk of social exclusion at a local or national level.

This motion has been signed by a total of 64 MPs.
