News and stories News State of Caring Survey 2018 Each year Carers UK run the State of Caring Survey to help them show the reality of what it means to care for a family member or friend. They need your help to give them the evidence to support their campaigns and give them a real-time picture of what it’s like to be a carer in 2018. This is the most extensive survey into carers' experiences in the UK. As a result, it will take at least 20 - 30 minutes to complete. Carers UK are grateful to each and every person who takes the time to complete the survey and give us a full picture of their caring experience. FILL IN THE SURVEY NOW Carers UK will publish the survey results later in the year. Campaigning for change This year Carers UK are campaigning for carers to be able to access a break from their caring role, for a rise in Carer’s Allowance and for stronger rights for carers who are juggling work and care.
