Carers UK have launched the 2024 State of Caring Survey to inform their policy and campaigning work on behalf of unpaid carers. 

Completing the survey provides an opportunity to influence policies and actions that improve the lives of unpaid carers across the UK. Previous survey responses have contributed to:

  • The development of a Carer Poverty Coalition to prevent carer poverty
  • A published manifesto calling on political parties to commit to unpaid carers 
  • A call for a National Carers Strategy 
  • Growing awareness of the need for unpaid carers leave and the Carer's Leave Act 
  • Advocacy to address overpayments of Carer's Allowance
  • Greater public awareness of unpaid carers through promotion on BBC radio, national TV, and newspapers
