New report seeks more support for family carers to work and care

Hallmark Foundation has co-funded and been involved developing a new report on supporting family carers, Creating a Britain that Works and Cares, published by the Centre for Social Justice.

The report makes wide-ranging recommendations for government, nationally and locally, drawing on interviews and surveys with carers, cost-benefit analysis and good practice. The recommendations include better financial support, help with home improvements and getting into work, local advice for carers and up to ten hours free care.

The report was featured in the Daily Mail: and other media.

Hallmark Foundation is grateful to the CSJ and all the carers and organisations who contributed to the report for their commitment to improving life for family carers and those they support.
