Prepared to Care? Survey

Every day 6,000 people take on new caring responsibilities in the UK. Without the right support, advice and information caring can impact on your relationships, finances, career and health and well-being. This Carers Week are exploring how Prepared to Care? we are in the UK and asking carers what would make a real difference to their lives.

The Carers Week partners have asked carers to share their experiences of being carers and the impact it has had on their lives. The findings of this survey will be incorporated into a report that will be published to announce the start of Carers Week 2013 and identify recommendations that the campaign will focus on in 2014 and 2015.

Hearing directly from carers the challenges they face while caring is a vital part of Carers Week. The Carers Week partners work with a wide range of carers who help to highlight the highs and lows of caring in a range of ways. If you are a carer and would like to share your story with the media, write a blog or short article or get involved in campaigning.
