Carers UK is conducting a major new research survey into the impact of caring unpaid for ill, frail or disabled relatives. They are assessing carers’ health, wellbeing and finances, and the support they receive from health and care services and their employers if they juggle work and care.
This survey brings together and updates a variety of different pieces of research Carers UK has done in previous years to get a fresh picture of the state of caring in 2010-11. Because the survey covers lots of different aspects of caring it is longer than usual, and will take around 20 minutes to complete, however these questions are important to build a really clear picture of the impact of caring.
If you would prefer not to provide some of the details, you can skip certain questions. However the more details you provide the better able we are to build up a detailed picture of how caring affects different people.
As well as ticking the boxes, they are also keen to hear in more detail about your experiences and views. Please use the comments boxes if you would like to add more detail. If you have had a particularly good experience and received support that has made a real difference to you, or have had particularly bad experiences, they would like to know.
