As the country celebrates Carers Week 2020, Rachel has praised Redditch’s carers and talked about her experience of the care system.

Rachel said: “This Carers Week I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our amazing carers, not only for what they’re doing this week, but for what they do day in and day out.

“Whether you’re a carer working in a care home. Whether you’re working in someone’s own home, or whether you’re one of our amazing voluntary and community groups in Redditch who are helping carers and providing vital services – I appreciate everything that you do.

“I know from my first-hand experience with my mum who has a carer the hard-work that goes in to looking after someone when they’re at their most vulnerable.

“I want to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
