I pledge to do all I can to make East Londonderry a carer friendly constituency.

I have always been supported as a Carer and I co-chair the Ford Carers' staff network.

We pledge to raise awareness around the multiple responsibilities our colleagues and students who are carers juggle on a daily basis. A little gesture of flexibility and understanding shown towards them can go a long way. We would like to thank all of the carers for the hard work they are doing and we pledge to raise awareness of the support available to them.

I pledge to raise awareness for carers so that we can been seen as people with a 24/7 job not just a statistic on a benefits graph

We will continue to promote inclusivity by supporting those on the Fast Stream programme who have caring responsibilities.

I am supporting carers week, for the quiet army of people who dedicate their lives to helping others. With special homage to my Dad who looked after my Grandfather 24/7 during the last two years of his life - such important work, valued by the government at £62.70/week.

Training for volunteers, inc. H&S checking & First Aid, links to other organisations

They are very responsive and always go the extra mile to support us.

Nothing is ever too much for them, and they work not only with the person they are caring for but with their family.

I know first hand what a difficult job carers do. I also know that I couldn't work with a more dedicated, committed bunch of them. It's an honour to work with them.
