Supporting Carers

EDM number 614 in 2014-15, proposed by David Anderson on 10/12/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Community care, Incomes and poverty and Sickness, disability and carers' benefits.

That this House notes that there are an estimated 6.5 million carers across the UK; is seriously concerned that ongoing cuts to social care budgets are having a huge impact on the demands on individual carers; understands that if the estimated cost of unpaid care and support to ill, older or disabled people was paid by the state it could well be in excess of £100 billion; believes that it is unfair to expect these dedicated people to be forced into debt and financial hardship; and therefore calls on the present and future Governments to pledge to reform carers' benefits, stop cutting support to carers and protect vital support services from further cuts to prevent carer ill-health and isolation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 39 MPs.
