I fully support the ALLIANCE’s Health and Social Care manifesto. As an unpaid carer and brother of someone with a long term health condition I can empathise with some of the daily struggles people can endure. In terms of the manifesto I in particular support the calls for more to be done on lonliness and isolation a condition that can impact on all of society, young and old, and one that is grossly underestimated in Scotland today. I also fully support calls to further support unpaid carers. This is a group that RISE sees needs support and to be valued in Scotland, so much so we have made it a crucial part of our manifesto. Stuart Cooper, RISE candidate for South Scotland
