Worcestershire Association of Carers is one of over 100 organisations who have signed up to the new Carer Poverty Coalition.

As members of the Carer Poverty Coalition we campaign to:

  • End poverty amongst carers by advocating for policy change that adequately values, recognises and supports unpaid carers
  • Reform the benefits system to better support carers financially in the short and long term
  • Bring in better systems to support carers to continue with paid work
  • Build awareness of carer poverty and the impact of the cost of living crisis on unpaid carers with Government, parliamentarians, decision makers and the general public
