Last year over 6,000 of you filled in Carers UK surveys about your experiences of caring during the pandemic. Your responses have helped Carers UK campaign successfully for better guidance, testing for carers, PPE for unpaid carers, carers' “support bubbles” and exemptions to allow carers to get a break. As a result of pressure from Carers UK and many other organisations, carers were included in the priority list for the COVID-19 vaccination and Carers UK successfully campaigned for specific advice to support juggling work and care. Carers telling us what their priorities are have also helped to focus our work and help decision makers know what matters to you. Carers UK will continue to campaign for carers to get better support.
In this survey they will be asking you to tell them what life is like now, and what needs to change.
This is the most extensive survey into carers' experiences in the UK. As a result, it will take at least 30 minutes to complete - so grab a cuppa and get comfy!
