Episode 3

Season 1, Ep. 3

Thursday 26 November 2020 is Carers Rights Day.

This is a national day that helps to ensure unpaid carers are aware of their rights and know where to get help and support.

To mark Carers Rights Day, Carers Network is launching this new episode of their ‘Living Through Lockdown’ podcast series featuring an interview with Hammersmith MP Andy Slaughter.

In the episode, Carers Network’s Chair Nadia Taylor – who cares for her parents and husband in Hammersmith, talks with Andy Slaughter MP about the particular challenges facing unpaid carers.

They discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of caring, affecting carers’ access to services and activities and their physical and mental health. Carers are more isolated than ever before.

As well as wanting to bring these issues to the forefront this Carers Rights Day he urges us to “celebrate the fantastic achievements of carers and the efforts that are going in to beat the crisis at the moment …. I absolutely appreciate what every single carer in the borough, and indeed across the country, does. I particularly want to say thank you to Carers Network because without the support you give, people will be in a much worse condition both practically but also morally and mentally.” Andy Slaughter MP
