Carers UK are asking for our help to reach as many carers as possible so that they can amplify their voice.
The State of Caring Survey is the biggest of its kind, of carers, in the UK and the data collected paints a real picture of the life carers lead.
Last year more than 7000 carers shared their experience. The responses were used to provide evidence on a whole range of issues and to make the arguments to Government, to policy makers and to MPs about what carers need.
Carers UK say:
In the survey we’ll be asking you to tell us what life is like now, and what needs to change. This is the most extensive survey into carers' experiences in the UK. As a result, it will take at least 20 - 30 minutes to complete - so grab a cup of tea and get comfy!
You are able to skip most questions in the survey. If you don't have much time, then answering the questions with the tick boxes is very much appreciated. However, the more information you give us, the better we can build a comprehensive picture of how caring affects different people.
Thank you for taking the time to help - all responses make a real difference in helping all organisations and agencies to work together to make life better for carers.
