Carers Trust responds to the Government’s Green Paper plans for social care reform

“England’s five million carers – whether they are young adult carers, working-age carers, or older carers – are all still waiting for their own social care needs to be met, as well as those of the people they care for.

“The fact that carers are not mentioned in the First Secretary’s statement is completely at odds with what the government has repeatedly heard from carers about their social care needs, particularly carers’ recent engagement with the Carers Strategy.

“With no timeline for funding reform for young adult carers or working age carers, how much longer is the government going to delay on this?”
