Carer's leave consultation by the government

The government are seeking views on giving unpaid carers a week of unpaid leave to provide care.

Consultation closes 3 August 2020.

A week of unpaid leave … heavens above.


They want to talk to us, so let’s deluge them with our thoughts and feelings!!!

They are paying lots of people to sit at home through the pandemic.

Working carers to get a weeks unpaid leave to work all hours …fabulous!

I’m jumping for joy…not

I note it says nearly half of unpaid carers are in work! Really…how do they manage that then?,

I’m not seeing any mention of us oldies who no longer work, but just spend all day working at caring, no days off for us ever, Bank Holidays, weekends, they’re all just the same. :frowning:
