Liz Saville-Roberts MP announced as Plaid Cymru’s Parliamentary Champion for Carers Week 2023 

We are delighted to announce that Liz Saville-Roberts MP, the Member of Parliament for Dwyfor Meirionnydd has agreed to be the Plaid Cymru Parliamentary Champion for Carers Week 2023. 

Responding to the announcement, Liz Saville-Roberts MP said: 

''Looking after someone can be both an immensely rewarding and challenging experience, which is often fraught with difficulties, including accessing the right support when it is most needed. The invaluable role of unpaid carers across my constituency, and beyond, is a lifeline to those that they care for.

"Many carers are driven by a selfless sense of duty, friendship, and love, often to the detriment of their own health and wellbeing. All they want is to provide the best possible care for their loved ones. The cost-of-living crisis has led to unprecedent pressure on carers, with many struggling to make ends meet and worrying about how to get by.

"I urge the UK government to listen to calls from those within the care sector and establish a cross-Departmental Ministerial Group to focus on the support and recognition carers need.

"I urge my constituents in Dwyfor Meirionnydd to join me in thanking all carers across the constituency for their unyielding commitment and sense of duty. I hope we can all get behind the Carers Week campaign and fight for the support our carers so desperately need.''
