The State of Caring Survey is the UK’s most comprehensive research into the lives and experience of carers and the 2021 survey is now open. Carers Wales needs your help to get as many carers as possible to complete the survey so that they have robust quality evidence for our Wales report.
Our research and responses to our surveys over the last year have helped us to highlight carers’ experiences across the UK to the media. With carers help, we have campaigned successfully for better guidance, testing for carers, PPE for unpaid carers, carers “support bubbles” and exemptions to allow carers to get a break. Carers were also included in the priority list for the COVID-19 vaccination, and we campaigned for specific advice to support juggling work and care.
Carers telling us what their priorities are has also helped to focus our work and help decision makers know what matters to carers. We will continue to campaign for carers to get better support.
We ask that you share our survey with your supporters wherever possible and we appreciate each and every person who takes the time to complete the survey. Together you help us paint a picture of what caring has been like in the last year.
The survey can be completed here State of Caring Survey 2021 (surveymonkey.co.uk) and will close on 13th September. The final research report will be released in November.
