Simplyhealth comments on Carers Week 2018

Raman Sankaran, Chief Commercial Officer – Growth & Innovation at Simplyhealth, said:

“Carers Week is a great opportunity to celebrate the invaluable contribution working carers make to the lives of those for whom they care and to the performance of companies across the country.

Our research found that 42%* of people agreed that providing more support to working carers could help to fund a more sustainable social care system. It’s therefore encouraging that the Government has confirmed the forthcoming Green Paper will consider the needs of carers alongside the new social care strategy.

Whilst the cross-Government Carers Action Plan is welcome recognition of the immediate need to support carers, in and out of the workplace, the Green Paper provides an opportunity to go a step further, ensuring they are given the holistic, consistent and targeted support they need now, and in the future.”
