Government says it is working to address support for carers

In a statement the government has said: ‘We know some parents feel they can’t access enough support. We’re working with organisations, carer support groups and local authorities to address those issues.’

It comes after the MP for Leicester Liz Kendall led a commons vote on changes to the care bill today.

Some family carers say they are worried the government’s new Care Bill, which is currently going through parliament, will remove legal protection for the needs of “parent” carers – making it more difficult for parents to look after their children who need help.
