Please help Carers Scotland build a comprehensive picture of how caring affects people and families in Scotland.
Carers UK have launched their State of Caring Survey 2016 and need as many carers as possible across the whole of the UK to complete their online survey. The survey is quite detailed and may take 20 to 30 minutes to complete, so they suggest sitting down with a cuppa while you do it! As always, we want to encourage you to share your experiences – your experiences are so important, and policy makers are more likely to pay attention when there’s a lot of evidence to show them!
Carers Scotland will use information from the survey to show the impact of caring on Scottish carers and to gather evidence for more support. In Scotland work is underway to transfer disability and carers benefits from the UK to the Scottish Government. With new powers to improve financial support for carers it is more important than ever to show the impact of caring on Scottish carers.
Deadline for completing the survey is Friday 15th April.
