Carers Protest, March 3rd 2010
sign the petition
Please sign up to our cause. Carers are the backbone of our caring society and they get very little recognition for their hard work, often living in social and financial poverty with little or no support.
We have committee room 14 booked for people to talk to their MP's, so please ask your MP to be there and join us. It can be tremendously difficult for Carers to get away for the day, respite or sitters to arrange, transport to arrange, not to mention cost on Carers Allowance of just £53 per week. And no guarantee that even with everything in place they will be able to make it. Last Protest, April 2009, we had one poor lady just boarding the coach when a call came through to her and she had to go home, in tears.
So please, support our cause, represent yourselves with us on the day, help us to make the incoming Government realise that in the Welfare Reform it is time for action for Carers, not words.
