Since Covid-19 has been found not only in the UK but around the world, family carers have had to do more without being recognised by the government.

We are required to go and be on our duties as carers within Covid-19 and we feel invisible to the government and we suffer extreme pressure without the help that we deserve.

Even when the government is putting up carers allowance by £1 which is a disgrace in itself ,they don’t take into account the mental health issues that carers are facing trying to look after their loved ones not only within the Covid-19 pandemic but all of the time

We as carers need to be seen and not made invisible.
