Our survey research found that the cost of replacement care is one of the biggest barriers face in accessing a break. ❗ Urgent change is needed to ensure that carers are able to get the breaks they need and deserve ❗

Thousands of carers go without sleep & don’t even have the time to see a GP We need to give carers a break if we are to mend our social care system The Govt must double the money for local authorities to spend on respite care
