Carers UK  We are the national membership charity for carers. We provide expert advice and information and campaign for lasting change.

Our wonderful Carers UK members queuing up to sign our #FairerforCarers petition. In Scotland, Carer’s Allowance is going up by £8.50 per week, to the same level as Jobseeker’s Allowance. In the short term we want Carer’s Allowance in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to be raised by at least £8.50, to match the changes being made in Scotland.
We are asking people to add their name to a letter to the Secretary of State to make Carers Allowance #FairerforCarers across the UK.
