    - carers are able to have a life of their own alongside their caring role;
    - carers are supported so that they are not forced into financial hardship by their caring role;
    - carers are supported to stay mentally and physically well and treated with dignity;
    - young carers are protected from inappropriate caring and have the support they need to learn, develop and thrive, to enjoy positive childhoods
