It's time for young carers to get the support they deserve

As Carers Representative for the Young Liberals, my reaction to the Liberal Democrats' decision to focus on carers has been a mixture of relief, pride, and tentative excitement.

I have been a carer for my mother since 2009, when I was 14 years old.

It’s refreshing to see a political party put unpaid carers centre stage, especially after what feels like years of being brushed aside. I’m pleased that the party is focussing on Carers’ Allowance in particular, since I’ve been personally campaigning for its improvement since 2014.
