State of Caring 2023 Survey

The Carers UK annual State of Caring survey is the UK’s most comprehensive research into the lives and experience of unpaid carers. Last year a record 13,000 carers took part in the survey – the highest number of responses to date.

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 UK used carers’ responses 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 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 should take you around 20 to 30 minutes to complete and will close on 3 August with the results shared later in the year.
