Carers UK State of Caring Survey.

Are you an unpaid carer or know someone who is? As one of the Carers Week charities, we want to hear carers’ experiences of the impact on health, well-being and relationships of being a carer.

Every year the Carers UK “State of Caring” survey shows the reality of what it means to care for a family member of a friend. This is the most extensive survey into carers’ experiences in the UK.  It takes 20-30 minutes to complete, so grab a cuppa first! It would be appreciated if you spare the time to share your experience here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/StateofCaringCarersWeek
