State of Caring Survey 2021/Arolwg Cyflwr Gofalu 2021 - Survey open until 13th September
The State of Caring Survey is the UK’s most comprehensive research into the lives and experience of carers and the 2021 survey is now open. Carers Wales needs your help to get as many carers as possible to complete the survey so that it has robust quality evidence for its Wales report.
Carers UK's research and responses to its surveys over the last year has helped them to highlight carers’ experiences across the UK to the media. With carers help, they have campaigned successfully for better guidance, testing for carers, PPE for unpaid carers, carers “support bubbles” and exemptions to allow carers to get a break. Carers were also included in the priority list for the COVID-19 vaccination, and they campaigned for specific advice to support juggling work and care.
Carers telling Carers UK what their priorities are has also helped to focus their work and help decision makers know what matters to carers. They will continue to campaign for carers to get better support.
Carers UK are asking that you share the survey with your supporters wherever possible and appreciate each and every person who takes the time to complete the survey. Together you help Carers UK paint a picture of what caring has been like in the last year.
The survey can be completed here State of Caring Survey 2021 (surveymonkey.co.uk) and will close on 13th September. The final research report will be released in November.
