AnnotationThe reliance on women as carers has serious consequences for the promotion of equal opportunities for men and women generally. This report indicates the scale of caring and dependency; demonstrates the costs of caring in emotional, social and financial terms; examines the social and health services available to disabled people and their carers designed to relieve the burden of care; and outlines the effects of reductions in public expenditure in the early 1980s on these services.
