Carers_Week.jpgDaniel Zeichner MP today pledged his support to carers across Cambridge as part of the national Carers Week 2015 awareness campaign, which runs from 8-14th June.

There are 6.5 million people in the UK who care for a partner, relative or friend, of which 8,870 carers are in Cambridge

Without the right help and support, caring can have a devastating impact – carers can quickly become isolated, with their physical and emotional health, work and finances all hit hard.

The six charities driving Carers Week 2015 are calling on individuals, organisations and services throughout the country to take action to improve the lives of carers by building ‘carer-friendly communities’ that consider and support their needs.

The call comes after research for Carers Week revealed that the variation in the support and recognition carers experience from services across the country is putting the health of many carers, and their ability to support the people they care for, at risk.

Maiden_Speech.jpgCambridge's new MP tonight gave his first speech from the Commons famous green benches and he used the occasion to call for bolder thinking and more powers for cities like Cambridge so that everyone living in our city can share in its prosperity.

The MP praised Cambridge's "flourishing businesses, our buccaneering innovators and technological hubs and universities" while stressing there was a less well known side to Cambridge too where people struggled to pay the bills.

He said: "The average terraced home in Cambridge costs nearly £450,000, the average rent is nearly twice the English average. Our city Housing Benefit Bill has doubled in the space of just 5 years because some 12,000 people in prosperous Cambridge earn below the living wage."
