National Carers Rights Day 2020


Councillor Tom Gordon and the Lib Dems fight to give carers a voice

Wakefield Liberal Democrats are asking people across our community who care for relatives to get in touch and share their story – to mark national Carers Rights Day. 

Liberal Democrat party leader Ed Davey has said he wants the party wants to be a "strong voice" for the millions across the country – including over 33,000 people across Wakefield District who care for those who need it. 

Ed himself knows the burden put on carers for family members - having been a carer for his mum when growing up and now caring for his disabled son.

Carers can get in touch and share their experiences at www.libdems.org.uk/carerssurvey

Cllr Tom Gordon said:

"Millions of people across the country act as unpaid carers for loved ones. This year has highlighted more than ever the issues many of them face."

"If you are a carer - or someone who receives regular care support from a relative of a friend - we want to hear from you. Please get in touch with us and share your story."
