Every year Carers UK, the biggest carers charity in the UK, conduct a ‘State of Caring’ survey to collect information about carers and caring across the UK.  The information is used in their annual ‘State of Caring’ report and is a useful tool in helping to shape the needs and priorities of carers.

Information collected is confidential but helps to build a clearer picture of unpaid family and friend carers and also raise awareness of the tremendous work that is done 24 hours a day, seven days a week by the thousands of carers all over the country.

It takes around 20-30 minutes to complete, but will also hammer home just how invaluable you are as a carer.  You can find the survey here
