Petition Professionals to receive mandatory training around Carers and their needs

There is continuing to be a significant increase in unpaid Carers coming forward for help and support. However, some Carers feel unable to ask for help, therefore, professionals identifying a Carer is extremely important.
Unfortunately, a lot of professionals lack the knowledge of Carers.

More details

‘There are around 7 million Carers in the U.K. - that is one in ten people!’ (

Professionals having mandatory training would give them the knowledge they need in order to help, support and identify Carers earlier.

Unpaid Carers are not valued - Let’s change this!
