Carers Week – Liz pledges to support carers in Parliament

[14/06/2018 | No comment]

This week is Carers Week and I joined Carers UK to pledge that I will do all I can to support carers through my work in Parliament. There are 100,000 people in Leicester and Leicestershire who are looking after a parent, partner, child or friend, including 8,952 in my constituency.  I am backing the call from Carers UK for the introduction of up to 10 days of paid care leave a year. I pledge to encourage more businesses in Leicester to provide paid care leave to their staff, and to continue pressing the Government to act now and support the UK’s three million carers.
