State of Caring Survey 2019

Last year over 7,000 carers shared their experience of caring. This allowed us to highlight the impact of being a carer to the media, in dozens of evidence submissions to Government and Parliamentary consultations, and in reports that influence decision makers and policy makers in a wide range of areas.
In the survey we’ll be asking you to tell us 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 20 - 30 minutes to complete - so grab a cuppa and get comfy!

Please note that this survey is only for those caring unpaid for a disabled, older or seriously ill relative or friend.

We realise that carers are busy. You are able to skip most questions in the survey. If you don't have much time, then answering the questions with the tick boxes is very much appreciated. However, the more information you give us, the better we can build a comprehensive picture of how caring affects different people. We are really keen to hear about your experiences – good or bad – in as much detail as possible as this helps us paint a picture of what it is like to be a carer in 2019 so if you have more time, please use the comment boxes.
Any comments you leave would not be identified as yours unless you give us permission to contact you and we get agreement from you to do so. Your details will never be passed on to a third party.

We are so grateful to each and every person who takes the time to complete the survey and give us a full picture of their caring experience. We will publish the top-line results in our State of Caring Report in the summer.
