Zöe Franklin and the Liberal Democrats fight to give carers a voice

The Liberal Democrats are asking people across our community who care for relatives to get in touch and share their story - to mark national Carers Rights Day on Thursday 26th November.

Liberal Democrat party leader Ed Davey has said he wants the party wants to be a "strong voice" for the millions across the country - including the 9,408 people across Guildford and Cranleigh who care for those who need it.

Ed himself knows the burden put on carers for family members - having been a carer for his mum when growing up and now caring for his disabled son.

Carers can get in touch and share their experiences at www.libdems.org.uk/carerssurvey

Zöe Franklin, Lib Dem Spokesperson for Guildford and Cranleigh, said:

"Millions of people across the country act as unpaid carers for loved ones. This year has highlighted more than ever the issues many of them face."

"If you are a carer - or someone who receives regular care support from a relative of a friend - we want to hear from you. Please get in touch with us and share your story."
