Jared pledges support to help carers be Healthy and Connected in Sheffield Hallam for Carers Week 2018

I was delighted to show my support for the carers in my constituency at the Carers Week event and I pledge to support the 10,466 carers in Sheffield Hallam through my work in  Parliament.  

Carers Week celebrates and recognises the vital contribution made by the 6.5 million people across the UK who currently provide care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health problem or who needs extra help as they grow older. The theme of this year’s campaign focuses on the mental health and wellbeing of carers, which is often neglected due to the toll caring for a loved one takes.

Unpaid carers make a huge contribution to our society, providing vital and often hidden support to friends and family members, and it is right that we value them and ensure they have the right support at the right time. I look forward to working with the Carers Week charities and with unpaid carers locally to make a difference to their lives.
