Carers UK is calling on the Government to take a fresh look at benefits for carers that will :

  1. Help carers work. Having to give up work is a direct cause of carer poverty. Carers lose income and through loss of pensions are storing up future poverty.

  2. Help carers who are unable to work. For some carers work is not an option. The level of skill and care they provide simply cannot be replaced.

  3. Help older carers enjoy a decent retirement. Carers lose their Carers Allowance when they reach retirement as the benefit is seen simply as an income replacement. Yet they continue to provide care with little or no recognition.
