National Charity Carers UK is calling for people providing unpaid care to someone who is ill, disabled or elderly, to take part in its 2020 State of Caring Survey.
The survey asks about what your life as a carer is like now and what you would like changed to support you in your caring role. You will be asked about your experiences of health and care services, your health and wellbeing and more.
You can complete the survey online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/C8VT99Z and it will be available until Sunday 17th May 2020. You can also learn more about it or find a link to the survey at www.carersuk.org/news-and-campaigns/state-of-caring-survey-2020
Carers UK uses the responses for campaigning to improve support and services for carers and informing the Government how their policies affect carers’ lives. Last year over 8,000 carers and former carers responded to the survey, some of what you shared about working while caring has supported a campaign calling for the Government to introduce Care Leave for working carers.
The survey will take about 20 - 30 minutes to complete but Carers UK would appreciate your support as it helps paint a picture of what it is like to be a carer in 2020.
