The Liberal Democrats are calling for more support for people who provide care for relatives or loved ones.
Over 1,793 people across Harlow act as unpaid carers and rely on the Carer's Allowance to support them.
Lib Dem leader Ed Davey MP - who was an unpaid carer for his mother when he was younger - believes it is time these carers were given a £1000 cash boost to support them.
Ed Davey said: "Many carers are facing extreme financial hardship, often relying on foodbanks to feed themselves and the people they care for."
Local Lib Dem campaigner Will Tennison added: "Unpaid carers in Harlow are doing a remarkable and job in very difficult circumstances. "The Liberal Democrats are determined to stand up for carers and fight to get them the support they deserve."
