All Party Parliamentary Group on Carers

The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Carers has reformed in 2022, following a hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic. The APPG is Chaired by Caroline Dinenage MP, and Co-Chaired by Baroness Jill Pitkeathley.

The APPG aims to ensure that the millions of people in the UK who provide unpaid care for ill, older or disabled loved ones get the recognition and support they need. The Group brings together Parliamentarians from across the political spectrum, alongside policy and practice experts, to promote awareness, to share knowledge, and to better understand of the needs of unpaid carers.

The APPG works on a cross-party basis and provides a forum for Parliamentarians and expert stakeholders to discuss what can be done across the NHS, social care, employment policy, and the social security system to improve the lives of carers.
