Carers Week gives my Scottish Labour colleagues and me the chance to pay thanks to you, and 800,000 fellow carers, for the monumental support you provide every day of the year.
Out of love, you dedicate your lives to caring for friends and relatives, all year round. You are the unsung heroes of our country and do not get nearly enough recognition
for the massive unpaid contribution you make to society. You save the government, particularly our NHS and social care system, billions of pounds because of the selfless care and attention you provide. Thank you.
