Take Carers UK’s survey – research into your experiences of support services in the pandemic

Carers UK has launched a survey to capture carers’ experiences of being able to – or not being able to – take time away from their caring responsibilities during the Covid-19 pandemic. This survey will close on Sunday 25 April.

Your responses to this survey will enable Carers UK to provide comprehensive evidence of what carers are experiencing to influence Government decision making, highlight carers’ experiences in the media, and ensure that Carers UK’s advice and information resources are appropriate for carers’ needs. They will also be using this survey to highlight the experiences of carers during Carers Week 2021 (June 8 – June 13).

This is survey is for unpaid carers who are looking after a disabled, older or seriously ill relative or friend. We realise that carers are busy, especially in the current circumstances. The survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete but you are able to skip questions in the survey if you don’t have much time. However, the more information you provide, the better we can build a comprehensive picture of carers’ lives.

Any comments you provide will not be identified as yours unless you give Carers UK permission to contact you, and they get agreement from you to do so. Your details will never be passed on to a third party.

You can take the survey here. This survey will close on Sunday 25 April.
