Rutland Lib Dems 'Stand Up for Carers'

Stand up for carers2

Last month, as part of the Lib Dem campaign to 'STAND UP FOR CARERS' Liberal Democrat councillors in Rutland brought a motion to the council which:
  • Asks the Council Leader to communicate with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and the MP for Rutland and Melton, seeking their assurance that they will review the allowances by Government to carers and that they will ensure that the payments are increased sufficiently to be commensurate with the responsibilities and the time they taken on their caring roles
  • Encourages the council to issue communications to residents and organisations in Rutland aimed at identifying carers and increasing awareness of their right to seek council support and claim Government financial assistance.
