Carers UK has joined forces with Barbara Keeley MP and a cross party group of MPs to work on a new piece of legislation to improve the supply of social care and help identify hidden carers.
Barbara Keeley MP, a long-term advocate for carers, secured a spot in the parliamentary calendar for a ‘Private Member’s Bill’ – a piece of legislation proposed by a backbench MP rather than the Government – and chose to use the opportunity to champion carers’ rights.
For Private Member’s Bills to succeed they need to win support and convince the Government to allow MPs to debate the Bills. The support of individuals, local groups and national organisations will therefore make big difference in adding weight to the case in favour of this Bill.
We urgently need your help. To add your support please fill in your details on this form, and we will keep you updated on the progress of the Bill.
