We pledge to support all parents/carers who have children or young people with all kinds of disabilities in the Bournemouth area. We will offer information, support and advice and we will put them in touch with other organisations who can offer further help.

I pledge to remember and remind others of the importance of Carers and to promote their involvement and highlight their issues.

I pledge to celebrate the fantastic contribution of the UK's 6.5 million carers; raise awareness of the challenges they face; and promote ‘Carer Friendly Communities’ in my constituency of North Norfolk so that all carers receive the best possible support when they need it.

They provide a friendly and efficient service.

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 the carers at our institute for the hard work they are doing and we pledge to raise awareness of the support available to them.

They are my employer and allow me great flexibility that allows me to work alongside my carers responsibility
