What's on News and Stories 'Carers at Breaking Point' Carers UK report Carers at Breaking Point Click the link below to take a look at a recent report from Carers UK. Taken from the report: The stories of carers like those featured in this report show that many people are at breaking point and need time off from their caring role to do activities which most other people take for granted. Imagine being on call all the time, on duty, never getting a night’s sleep, no time to yourself or proper time with family or close friends. This is the reality for many carers because of the shortage of good quality breaks, and a lack of funding for health and social care. This report also indicates that an unfair postcode lottery currently exists in England, with access to breaks and funding varying drastically across the nation. To see the report, click here.
