My spotlight review into how unpaid carers are managing will be held in the summer.

I successfully proposed the review (it took a few meetings for it to be agreed!) last September after doing some research which found that many may be struggling financially as well as with a lack of respite care.

I am pleased to say that I have now been contacted by quite a few unpaid carers looking after friends and family who would like to take part.

If you would like to take part in the review, which I will chair, please contact scrutiny@devon.gov.uk

Thank you!
