Harry’s Pledge – a commitment to carers 

Harry’s Pledge 

Campbell Tickell are pleased to support Harry’s Pledge, a united national commitment to support, recognise and champion carers.

The coronavirus crisis has highlighted the vital work that carers do. It has also shown that, as a society, we should value carers more – both those paid and unpaid.

Harry’s Pledge focuses on four areas to support those who need care and those who provide it. These areas are:

  • Being supportive employers to people that have caring responsibilities
  • Making offices and community spaces as accessible as possible
  • Building more fully-accessible homes
  • Further professionalising and promoting care as a career, and lobbying for changes in pay and rewards for carers.

Julie Doyle, Chief Executive of Longhurst Group, whose Grandson Harry inspired the name of the campaign, says:

We know that people are living longer and with more complex health conditions. We need to think about the support we provide to carers and those that need care in a much more holistic way.

The commitments outlined in Harry’s Pledge are eminently achievable and inexpensive, we just need to see things through a different lens and change our philosophy.

Now is the time. We’ll never have a better opportunity to make this commitment to carers and make a positive difference to so many people across the country.
