A national consultation is now open about government’s intention to increase the provision of Changing Places toilets, about whether this should be a mandatory requirement in building regulations and for which types of buildings/public spaces.
Earlier this year, Carers Support Centre provided evidence to The Work and Pensions Select Committee inquiry into the employment support that unpaid carers receive. The committee produced its recommendations on Support for carers and the Government has just published its response to these.
Some carer representatives supported by Carers Support Centre fed into a national consultation on transport last year.
On Tuesday 5th June the government published its long-awaited Carers Action Plan setting out how to support carers over the next two years (2018-2020).
