Visit from MP boosts Stevenage carers
Some of Stevenage’s 7,000 carers gave MP for Stevenage, Stephen McPartland, an insight into the reality of caring for someone close, when he made a fact finding visit to local charity Carers in Hertfordshire’s Carers Count Meeting at the Oval Community Centre.
Stephen said: “I was very pleased to listen to the experiences facing carers in Stevenage and was keen to hear exactly how they felt. My priority is to stand up for local people and get them the best deal possible and I found the meeting very useful. There are a number of points that I am going to look into in more detail and I will continue to stand up for carers in Parliament”.
