"Covid was frightening. I couldn't afford to get ill"

We're lucky enough to hear from Carers every week so we know just how brilliant they are and how vital it is that they get the support they need. Today marks the start of Carer's Week, and to celebrate we chatted to Jenny who is a Carer.
Thank you Carers

Jenny chatted to us about what it's like to be a Carer during lockdown and why she's passionate about getting other people to recognise that they are Carers.

It's ok to feel angry and overwhelmed
