Need to know. Transitions in and out of caring: the information challenge
As our population ages and more people live for longer with long-term health conditions, the pressure on families to provide care and support will continue to increase.
This means it has never been more important for good quality information and advice to be available for carers and a step-change is needed with new policies to ensure that carers are identified and reached earlier.
