Here is a quote taken from a study of carers in 2013:
“Caring is incredibly isolating. I cannot emphasise enough how important it is to try to hold on to your own friends, your own life”
What we have seen already with our new
clubs & groups is how people have come along, formed bonds and friendships and started a life outside of their caring role, in a warm, friendly and safe environment. We even have quiz teams from our various groups & clubs attending the monthly carers quiz. We have seen the huge impact this has on
their wellbeing, happiness and lives
CARERS UK - STATE OF CARING 2018 SURVEY
Carers UK are looking for carers to complete a survey to help them show the reality of what is means to care for a family member or friend, to use as evidence to support their campaigns.
This year they are campaigning for carers to access a break from their caring role, a rise in Carer's Allowance and strong rights for working carers. The survey takes about 20-30 minutes - click here to go to the Carers UK Web Page
