Carers UK – State of Caring Survey 2017
Carers UK run the State of Caring survey each year to find out what life is like for people who are caring, and what needs to change to make life better.
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.
Can you share the survey with carers?
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. We use the responses to provide evidence to policy makers.
In the last year we’ve used evidence from carers 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.
Thank you for taking the time to help us – all responses make a real difference in helping us work together to make life better for carers.
