THE role of Parliamentary Ambassador for the nationwide carers’ campaign has been given to Burnham MP Tessa Munt.

Ms Munt is one of three ambassadors in a role which aims to help carers who miss out on vital support and services.

Ms Munt said: “I have nothing but respect and admiration for our carers.

“They perform vital work in homes throughout our communities every day, often silently and behind closed doors without support or thanks.

“I’ll use my position as ambassador to promote awareness of our carers and the work they perform, which benefits us all.”
