The Carers UK annual State of Caring survey is the UK’s most comprehensive research into the lives and experience of carers. Last year a record 13,000 carers took part – the highest number of responses ever. This year, they want to reach even more carers.

The survey takes around 20-30 minutes to complete and will close on 3rd August – they really appreciate every carer who takes the time to share their experiences.
