Through the evidence we gather from our State of Caring survey we can push for change. In the biggest survey of its kind of carers in the UK, the data we collect paints a real picture of the life carers lead.
We use the responses to provide evidence to policy makers.
We run the survey each year to find out what life is like for people who are caring, and what needs to change to make life better.
By sharing your views and experiences you help us provide vital evidence for our campaigns and work with Government. In the last year we’ve used your evidence to:
• Submit research to the UK Government’s Carers Strategy.
• Demonstrate that the Care Act in England is not making enough of a difference to carers’ lives.
• Argue for the needs of carers to be central in housing policy.
Please tell us about your caring role, by taking the survey, it will take 20-30 minutes to complete. We are incredibly grateful to each and every person who takes the time to tell us about their experiences – good or bad.
Thank you for taking the time to help us – your responses make a real difference in helping us work together to make life better for carers.
