State of Caring 2016

Carers UK carries out an annual survey of carers to collect evidence on a whole range of issues affecting carers' lives.

6,149 people shared their views and experiences on what life was like for carers in 2016.

The report showed that carers continue to see negative impacts on their finances, with 48% of those caring 35 hours or more struggling to make ends meet. Half of carers responding to the survey (49%) left work to care, with a further quarter (23%) reducing their hours.
