Do you care for a family member or friend with a disability, health condition, drug / alcohol or mental health issue, or who is older and frail? If you care unpaid (apart from benefits), then you are probably an unpaid Carer, and we’d like to hear from you - we really do listen!

Healthwatch, your local independent consumer champion, is carrying out this independent survey into Carer Support and how services could do things differently. Your views will help shape services over the next three years.

We know your time is valuable, and do not want to cause any additional stress. So please just complete as much of the survey as you are able to by ticking boxes, or you can leave comments too.

You can join a prize draw to win one of three £50 shopping vouchers.
All responses will be kept anonymous, unless you request otherwise.

For help with the form, or if you have any other feedback, please contact Healthwatch, Monday - Friday 9.30am - 12pm, on Freephone 08000 520 029.

Torbay Carers Service has extended the deadline for survey submissions until March due to the COVID situation.  Answers submitted by 8th January have been collated into Healthwatch’s report, but those received after this date will still inform the development of the Carers Strategy for the next three years.

To join Torbay Carers’ Register, or for any support in your caring role, please do contact Carers’ Services on 01803 66 66 20,
