disability welfare

Carers Week is a time to celebrate all that carers do, and look at what each part of society can contribute to improving their lives. But a clear message must also go to Government and local councils to invest in support for carers. Cutting support to families who care is short-sighted
As a disabled person myself, and one who has needed to fall back on the benefits system at different times during my life time, I think it is time that the truth was told, both about the figures and how the distortion of the truth is impacting on the lives of real people.
