Angry Money Box Live: Unpaid Carers

BBC Mpneybox
Quote:
Unpaid carers are people of any age who look after friends or family members who need help due to a mental health issue, disability, illness or addiction. Last year analysis from the Office for National Statistics suggested that the social care provided by unpaid carers in the UK is worth 57bn. What help, both financial and otherwise, is available for unpaid carers? If you have a separate job what legal and informal options exist for you to get the help you need from your employer? If you're a young carer, where can you find support? Joining Paul Lewis are Sally West, Policy Manager Income and Policy for Age UK, Katherine Wilson, Head of Employers for Carers which is a Carers UK initiative and Laura Bennett, Senior Policy Manager, Young and Young Adult Carers at Carers Trust. Email your questions relating to unpaid carers for them now to moneybox@bbc.co.uk or you can call 03700 100 444 between 1pm and 3.30pm on Wednesday 11th July 2018. Standard geographic charges from landlines and mobiles will apply.Presenter: Paul Lewis Producer: Charmaine CozierEditor: Richard Vardon.
