Report 3: Diversity in Caring: towards equality for carers
Report No. 3 highlights new evidence about carers in all their diversity and about how different groups of carers experience their caring situation, especially in relation to their ability to combine caring with paid employment. The CES study includes responses from ethnic minority carers, and extensive data about carers supporting someone living in a rural area, carers in difficult financial circumstances, and carers in poor health. This report illustrates the situation of these groups of carers with data from our qualitative interviews to explore how far carers with these characteristics have distinct needs or experiences which differentiate them from other carers.
