Carers charter to be launched

A Carers charter is to be launched on the Isle of Man today.

It's the initiative of Crossroads Care, the charity which cares for carers, following a commission from government.

What's being billed as the largest conference ever held on the work of carers is being held at the Villa Marina today, hosted by Crossroads Care and sponsored by Celton Manx.

There are thought to be around 10,000 carers on the Isle of Man currently and Jackie Bettridge from the charity says the fact this figure is set to rise shows a clear need for such a charter
