I have made a difference in people’s life and would love to keep doing so...I work as PA. Saved families from crisis. Being a background of Dentist I have a diagnostic eye to foresee the crisis and solution at the same time. Saves a lot of hassle indirectly..

To put in place systems to identify carers, proactively connect them to support with their own health and wellbeing, and ensure carers have the information they need to care safely and well.

I pledge to support carers in Manchester Withington. Unpaid carers make a huge contribution to our society, providing vital and often hidden support to friends and family members. It is right that we value them and ensure they have the right support at the right time. I look forward to working with the Carers Week charities, and, with unpaid carers, locally, to make a difference to their lives.

I pledge to campaign within Stevenage to build a carer friendly community. I pledge to be an activist so that the Town does not celebrate Carers just once a year, but every day recognises the value and contribution unpaid Carers make every day. To ensure those in power think what about Carers throughout all their deliberations.

As a dentist with an interest in IT I have used my experience to provide a free go to resource for my patients and the public with an eHealth product. I will maintain a website as a resource for carers to give guidance on oral healthcare. Care4teeth.org I also have made an oral health App teeth4life which is a free download with a video section for carers. Both have links to further resources with a free on line course with certification.

Over 10 million people in the UK today can expect to see their 100th birthday. As the population ages, more of us are likely to provide care in our lifetime. Carers already make a huge contribution to society, providing vital and often hidden support to friends and family. Many also play invaluable roles as volunteers within communities or as employees. Sadly, carers often struggle to access the help and support they need. While caring can be rewarding, too many find it has a detrimental impact on their health and wellbeing, and are lonely or isolated. The Government’s Loneliness Strategy highlights the role that employers can play to support employees to look after their social wellbeing. We are working closely with the Campaign to End Loneliness and a group of employers to take that forward and develop advice and guidance. Staying connected to work and having the right opportunities is important not just for financial security but also matters to the health, wellbeing and sense of identity of many carers. The government is working to ensure quality work for all and will, under the Good Work Plan, take forward the biggest package of workplace reforms in a generation. As part of our ongoing work to promote flexible working, we will take forward proposals on dedicated employment rights for workers soon, to help employees balance work and caring responsibilities. But more can be done to raise awareness and help carers connect. This is why I support Carers Week 2019.

To connect carers to each other and to information and support with caring.

To drive forward the rights of unpaid carers in our diverse rural communities To ensure the voice of carers is heard. To ensure unpaid carers are provided with opportunities to stay connected with others despite the caring challenges that they may be facing, to focus on providing access to health promotions strategies and promote self management where possible, to ensure each and every carer identified does not feel alone on the Caring journey, to promote income maximisation and provide access Relevant information to each individuals caring situation, to provide opportunities to enjoy a life outside caring by supporting access to funded short breaks, respite and social activities, to work effectively across multi agencies statutory and voluntary sector to ensure carers have the best possible support provided by services available. We pledge to do this with a listening ear and empathetic approach a smile and a warmth that allows each carer to feel at the heart of everything we do ❤️
