Nigel Priestley met Alan Johnson the former Labour Cabinet minister in London recently. Mr Johnson has become a patron of the Family Rights Group, a family support organisation of which Mr Priestley is a trustee.

Alan Johnson has been in the news following the publication of a best selling autobiography “This Boy“. The book tells the story of his early life. He was brought up by his 15 year of sister after both his parents died. Alan Johnson has been described as “one of the best prime
ministers this country could have ever had”.

Commenting Mr Priestley said “FRG recently published research “Big Bruv Little Sis” which showed that sibling carers experience age discrimination- they are not taken seriously because of their age.

Despite juggling college or work commitments they struggled to get support from Children’s Services.”

“I’m pleased that with our specialist lawyers at Ridley and Hall sibling carers and kinship carers can find a team committed to fighting for the support they need.”
