MP Throws Support Behind Carers Week

Scilly MP, Andrew George

The week-long programme of events for Carers Week has finished on the islands and now Scilly’s MP, Andrew George, is throwing his support behind the nationwide initiative.

He says that thousands of people across his constituency sacrifice their own time, money and health in order to care for a loved one.

And he says they deserve to be recognised for the contribution to our local community and wider society, adding that they save the country £119 billion every year.

Andrew claims to be supporting carers week to demonstrate his respect and appreciation for carers.
