Carers’ needs, choices and voices will remain at the heart of everything they do, as they strive to ensure that the enormous contribution they make to those they care for and to society is fully recognised, appreciated and valued.
Andrew Cozens, Chair of Carers Trust said:
The merger “will give us a single, stronger voice with which to raise greater awareness of the issues that carers face, as well as the money needed to sustain existing, and develop new, services for carers.”
