Carers UK's State of Caring survey 2022 is now live!

This is the most comprehensive research into the experience of carers in the UK. It creates a powerful body of evidence that highlights what caring looks like in the UK today and what needs to be done to ensure carers are supported. We are encouraging local carers to take part in the online survey so the national data truly represents the experiences of carers from the South Tees area.

Last year, over 8,000 carers shared their experiences in the survey. This helped Carers UK to secure new rights for carers in the Health and Social Care Act 2022 in England, provide evidence of the need for a right to Carer’s Leave and campaign for the cost of living support for carers across the UK.

Carers UK wants to hear what challenges you’re facing and what support you need. Have your say: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YR9Y9W6

The survey takes around 20-30 minutes to complete; the national charity realises that carers are busy. You can skip most questions in the survey. If you don't have much time, then answering the questions with the tick boxes is very much appreciated. However, the more information you provide, the better we can build a comprehensive picture of how caring affects different people

In the survey, you’ll be asked what life is like now, and what needs to change. Your responses will enable Carers UK to be more focused in their work and to communicate to decision makers what really matters to you. We will also be looking at this data locally to ensure the work of the South Tees Carers Forum and All Age South Tees Carers Provision is reflective of the current need. 

This survey is confidential and your personal details will never be passed on to a third party. We will publish the anonymised results of this survey. For more information, please see Carers UK's privacy notice here.

The main results will be published by Carers UK in their State of Caring report in the autumn.
