Carers UK state of caring survey 2023
The Carers UK annual State of Caring survey is the UK’s most comprehensive research into the lives and experiences of unpaid carers. Last year a record 13,000 carers took part in the survey – the highest number of responses to date.
This year's survey is now live and Carers UK are once again asking for unpaid carers' views on life in the UK.
With a General Election in Westminster on the horizon, knowing the issues carers face in 2023 couldn’t come at a more important time.
Last year, carers’ responses were used to:
- Win landmark new rights for two million employees to take up to five days’ unpaid Carer’s Leave.
- Seek improvements to carers’ benefits through the newly established Carer Poverty Coalition
- Press for carers to be included in the cost of living payments, with vital evidence of carers’ financial struggles
- Show the impact of the backlog in the NHS and make sure carers are not forgotten in NHS and care reforms
The survey will close on the 3rd of August and the results will be shared later in the year.
