Cabinet champion for England urged

England needs a cabinet-level champion for carers, campaigners said last week.

Members of the all-party parliamentary carers group called on the government to follow the example of Wales, which last month appointed John Griffiths as carers’ champion.

Roz Williamson, head of Carers Wales, said Griffiths needed to ensure carers’ policies linked with policies in transport, care and health.

Helen Ferguson, head of Carers Northern Ireland, said there was an “increasing divergence” between policies in different parts of the UK.
