April 25, 2013 3:37 PM

Jenny Willott, MP for Cardiff Central, has given her support to Carers Week 2013, which takes place between June 10th - 16th.

"Thousands of people all over the country are dedicating time, energy and money to caring for people around them, completely unpaid and simply because it is the right thing to do. I know there is a huge amount of pressure on many carers: caring can be time-consuming and exhausting, with enormous responsibility for often very vulnerable people."

"I would like to see a greater recognition of the importance of carers, which is why I am delighted to support Carers Week 2013. The role of carers is only going to become more significant, not least given our ageing population, and I believe it is imperative that the people carrying out such an essential role in our society are recognised and applauded for all their hard work."
