About this consultation 

The Dundee Carers Partnership are interested in hearing about the experiences of unpaid carers and young carers during the coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19). The Carers Partnership plans actions to support adults and children who support a family member, partner, friend or neighbour who needs help because they are a disabled adult or child, have a long term illness or condition (including Mental Health), are affected by frailty in older age or by substance use. The help these carers give is unpaid. For more information about Carers Partnership please visit: https://carersofdundee.org/workforce/carers-partnership/

This survey is for people in Dundee who work with unpaid carers as a volunteer or someone employed to support carers or to support people of all ages who have the support of unpaid carers.

We want to hear from you, so that we can learn more about your experiences and use the information and views you share to develop our future plans and Covid-19 recovery support to offer the best support we can to carers.

If you want to know more about carers matters in Dundee or are seeking support as a carer visit www.carersofdundee.org or phone Dundee Carers Centre on 01382 200422.

There is a separate survey for carers to share views.

We would be grateful if you could take 15 minutes to share your experience and views with us.

How will my responses be used

This survey will help us to find out about your experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Any information you provide is completely voluntary and anonymous.

The responses you provide to this online survey will be collected by the Dundee Carers Centre and analysed by the Dundee Carers Partnership.

We may use quotes/comments included in responses to the online survey in our work, however these will never identify individual people.

We will use your anonymous information to write a report that will be shared with the Dundee Carers Partnership. The report will also be available to the public. The information in the report will be used to inform planning over the coming months, to try to find the best ways to support carers in Dundee.
