Lack of Support for Army of Care-Takers

From across the Pond.

A hidden army of unpaid carers in the Westcountry is being woefully failed by a lack of support according to a new report which warns of devastating consequences.
The region is estimated as being home to between 180,000 and 570,000 carers with many looking after frail or elderly relatives or disabled children every hour of every day.
But despite the fact they save taxpayers billions of pounds every year, they suffer in silence as their needs go ignored.
