Calls for more support for carers

It's carers rights day

On Carers Rights Day - a Barnsley charity is calling on more funding to help those who look after loved ones, who can't live independently.

Crossroads Care Chief Executive Joseph David, who used to be a carer, has told us it's difficult for them to get anytime to themselves.

Carers UK has found 1 in 4 people who've been caring for more than 15 years are in debt across the country.
