Facts about carers
Rosalyn Carter, wife of former President Jimmy Carter, speaking about care at home once said:
There are only four kinds of people in the world - those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers.
The national charity for carers, Carers UK, estimates that there are over 6.5 million people giving care at home in the UK. Families are the major source of care giving.
Most often it is women who take on the caring role, many of whom will also have child care responsibilities. More than 200,000 children across the UK are carers. 13,000 of the UK’s young carers provide care at home for over 50 hours a week.
This has dramatic consequences for their education, employment opportunities and future lives.
