THE CARERS WORLD RADIO+
ONLINE DEBATE QUESTION:
Most of us think that our human duty is to care for our family through good times and bad without state help, without reward and without complaining. But carers still need to eat, run a home and, like everyone else, strive for a good quality of life.
Secretly or openly, anyone of us acting as a carer want their selfless and free contribution to society recognised.
On top of that, in the present coronavirus emergency, self-isolation, social distancing and demands to stay at home are adding to the strain on each carer's already precarious state of living.
Now more than ever the key question for you to reply and debate...
"IF A CARER HAS TO GIVE UP THEIR JOB OR IS FORCED INTO SELF-ISOLATION, SHOULDN'T THEY BE PROTECTED AND PAID AS A STATE EMPLOYED WORKER?"
The CWR+ team work across four programme strands:
"CARERS QUESTIONS; "CARERS WORLD NEWS";
"CARERS WORLD LIVE" and "CARERS WORLD INVESTIGATES"
So we'd like to hear from you at any time... in complete confidence about your experiences...the problems that you'd like investigated....the issues that you want to hear debated...the decision makers that you would like us to interview...
