Getting the message to MPs

Over the next two weeks, representatives from Carers Trust will be heading to the Labour and Conservative Party Conferences to meet with MPs and tell them what they can do to support carers.

But it won’t be just us putting the case to politicians. You’ll be there with us too.

Because, in the last month we’ve been asking Carers Trust supporters to send us a message that we can pass on to politicians.

And, we haven’t been disappointed.

Lots of you have got in touch with your ideas, concerns, and issues that you want us to raise when we meet with MPs – the people with the power to bring political change to the lives of carers.

We’ve now collected all those thoughts together into this pack which we’ll be presenting to the MPs we meet with – making sure that your messages are drilled home.

So, all that is left for us to say is a big thank you to everyone who took the time to write to us – we’ll let you know after Conference how it goes!

And, if you didn’t get a chance to send us a message this time, don’t worry. There will be plenty more opportunities in the future!

  1. All my Carer’s Allowance is to help my husband with bills, supermarkets etc. I like to be informed what more right we have. I am alone looking after the home. I need attend any leisure for overweight, cholesterol etc. the life is much more expensive and every benefits are reduced.
