Lib Dems fight to give Carers a voice

November 26, 2020 8:30 AM

Hand holding by various peopleThe Surrey Lib Dems are asking people across the county who care for relatives to get in touch and share their story - to mark national Carers Rights Day.

Lib Dem Party Leader Ed Davey has said he wants the party wants to be a "strong voice" for the millions across the country - including the 97,691 people in Surrey who care for those who need it.

Ed himself knows the burden put on carers for family members, having been a carer for his mum when growing up and now caring for his disabled son. Carers can get in touch and share their experiences by completing the Lib Dems' carers survey here:

Lib Dem Group Leader, Councillor Chris Botten, said:

"Millions of people across the country and almost 100,000 people in Surrey act as unpaid carers for loved ones. This year has highlighted more than ever the issues many of them face."

"If you are a carer - or someone who receives regular care support from a relative of a friend - we want to here from you. Please get in touch with us and share your story."
