Helping hand for carers proposed in Wales

More people who look after disabled, sick and frail relatives could be entitled to help at home under proposals to change the law in Wales.

Carers will have their needs assessed and could get a payment that puts them in control of their own care budget.

The Welsh government said extra funding will not be required to deliver the Social Services and Wellbeing Bill.

Charities have called to see the details on who will be eligible for what kind of support.

Adrian Browne reports followed by an interview with Ros Williamson from Carers Wales.
