About this survey

The death of someone close brings huge changes and challenges. For those who were caring for the person before they died, life can change immeasurably.

Carers can be bereaved in many different ways: some will have been caring for someone who was known to be towards the end of their life, while others will have been caring for someone who died suddenly and unexpectedly. 

The National Bereavement Alliance (NBA) is working with NHS England to understand more about how support is - and could be - provided to carers before and after they are bereaved. We are looking for examples of good practice in supporting carers before and after bereavement. We want to share these examples widely to inspire local areas to adopt good practice that has worked well elsewhere.

If you work with carers, we would be very grateful if you would share your thoughts with us about support before and after a death. This survey will take around 5-10 minutes to complete, and is anonymous. At the end, you can submit examples of good practice if you are happy to share them. 

The survey will be open until 31 January 2018, but we are happy to receive submissions as soon as possible.

This survey is for people working with carers. We are also working with groups of former carers themselves to get their views, too. Please contact Alison Penny if you would like more information.
