1. State of Caring Survey 2017

Complete our State of Caring Survey and help us show the reality of what it means to care for a family member or friend in 2017.

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 cup of tea and get comfy! Please note that this survey is for those caring unpaid for a disabled, older or seriously ill relative or friend.

You are able to skip some questions in the survey. 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 2017 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 get agreement. 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 survey results later in the year.
