The Emergency Coronavirus Act enabled Local Authorities to remove significant parts of their duty of care responsibilities, stripping hard pressed families of valuable home and community support when they needed it most.

There is no break to be had as restrictive Government isolation guidance has deemed short breaks impossible, at the time they’re needed most. This means we're unable to offer our essential short breaks to carers and their loved ones.

Exhausted family carers need our help

Please help us shout louder than we ever have before.

"I try to keep myself calm, and tell myself I know I'm not the only one struggling like this, but I just can't physically do it. It's a desperate thing, we both just urgently need a break."

- Hilary, Mum & Carer for son Shaun
