Join the campaign to end carer poverty

The Carers Poverty Alliance has been active for over 2 years and has successfully organised a Carers Poverty Protest in both 2009 and 2010 when many Carer Groups worked together towards a single goal, that of the first ever Carers Poverty Protest in London and Edinburgh, simultaneously.

Starting off a the Carers Poverty Protest group, after the 2009 protest proved to be successful that all concerned wished to continue in bringing Carer issues to the fore and so the Carers Poverty Alliance came into being.

Their aims are to keep up the pressure for Financial and Social freedom from poverty for Carers, the only group of people who have to fight on all fronts every day of their lives for the most basic of necessities.

Carers have almost no chance of improving their circumstances due to the limitations placed on them by the benefits system and by the lack of affordable, reliable and approriate respite.

Carers save the NHS, the Government and the tax payer over £87 billion every year.
