That this House expresses its appreciation for the six million people in the UK who provide unpaid help and support to a relative or friend who is frail, ill or has a disability; notes that there are two million new carers each year, many of whom remain unknown to statutory agencies; further notes that Carers Week, being held from 11th to 17th June in 2007, has as its main objective enabling new and hidden carers to access support and services; further notes that being a carer for many people is an all-consuming and life-changing responsibility which can result in them becoming socially isolated; further notes that 1.25 million carers effectively carry out their role 24/7 and that three million carers juggle work and care, so carers miss out on opportunities because of their caring role; and welcomes the Review of the National Carers' Strategy, which presents an opportunity to address key issues for carers such as benefits, how carers can find suitable services to help them and the person they care for, and how carers can maintain their own health and wellbeing.
