Carers Wales press release: State of Caring Survey 2017: finding out the truth about carers’ lives in Wales
Through the evidence we gather from the Carers Wales State of Caring survey we can push for change. In the biggest survey of its kind of carers, the data we collect paints a real picture of the life carers lead.
We use the responses to provide evidence to policy makers.
Complete the survey
We run the survey each year to find out what life is like for people who are caring, and what needs to change to make life better.
By sharing your views and experiences you help us provide vital evidence for our campaigns and work with the Welsh Assembly and the UK Government. In the last year we’ve used your evidence to:
- Raise awareness of the need to reach carers’ earlier with financial and practical support and the impact of missing out
- Argue against planned cuts to the Family Fund for parent carers in Wales
- Scrutinise what difference the Social Services and Well Being Act (Wales) 2014 is making to carers in Wales.
Please tell us about your caring role, by taking the survey, it will take 20-30 minutes to complete. We are incredibly grateful to each and every person who takes the time to tell us about their experiences – good or bad.
Thank you for taking the time to help us – your responses make a real difference in helping us work together to make life better for carers.
