Please note that whilst the online version of the survey skips questions which are not relevant depending on your answers, the paper copy includes all questions.

How your response helps

Each year the State of Caring Survey helps us to track changes over time, gather up to date evidence on the impact of caring and help us campaign for a better deal. The views and experiences you share with us are at the heart of our work with Government and decision makers throughout the UK.

Since our last survey in 2014 we've used your experiences to shape our Carers Manifesto in preparation for the General Election in May 2015. The manifesto sets out what we want all political parties to do to support carers and what needs to change.

We've also used your views to shape a number of our influential reports, including the State of Caring 2014, Alone & caring, Quality of care and Carers at breaking point

This year is our 50th Anniversary so it is especially important for us to be able to paint a picture of the experiences of carers today. 

Any questions?

If you have any questions about the State of Caring Survey please get in touch with Chloe Wright, Policy and Public Affairs Manager, at . The survey results will be published later in the year to show what it is like to be a carer in 2015 and provide hard-hitting evidence for our campaigning.

Thank you for taking the time to help us – your responses make a real difference in helping us work together to make life better for carers.
