Country Correspondent: Molly FitzGerald

The Department of Health and Social Care has released a two-year action plan to support people who provide unpaid care for a family member or friend in England. Ministers from the Government Equalities Office and various departments, including business, energy and industrial strategy, and work and pensions, contributed to and invested in the plan, which was informed by views from nearly 7,000 people. Specific measures include a new program to improve employment support for caregivers and a review of best practices in the identification of young caregivers.
