“Unpaid carers provide the majority of care in this country – they are the pillar of our NHS and social care system and are facing one of the toughest situations ever.

“Without them, these systems would collapse. Yet too often carers feel invisible to the Government. As our new Prime Minister, Liz Truss must recognise the vital role of unpaid carers and ensure her Government delivers for them.”

Speaking to Express.co.uk, a DWP outlined the support being offered to unpaid carers by the Government.

They emphasised that Carer’s Allowance is “not intended to be a carer’s wage or payment, nor replace earnings”.

However, they noted that claimants may be able to apply for additional financial assistance from the Government.
