Sarah Ismail has launched a campaign to ensure that carers receive a minimum wage.
Sarah says, "As a disabled person, I've seen for myself the hard work carers do in their caring roles. They rarely complain but they often earn less than the minimum wage. I'd like to see Carer's Allowance raised to ensure carers earn at least the minimum wage."
She continues: "Carers are people too, with the intelligence and skills that should allow them to earn more than £95 a week. By caring for us in our own homes, they are saving the state a lot of money as well as giving disabled people a good quality of life, allowing us to spend time with friends and familiy in a familiar environment."
