In May we asked carers to tell us how Covid-19 had impacted them and their caring role. 

An amazing 352 Carers completed our survey- this shows Carers want to have a say on how Covid-19 has impacted on them and what support they need to continue to care following lockdown.

Here is a summary of the results, which were very powerful -

  • 95% Carers felt their emotional health & wellbeing were affected
  • 73% Carers worry about the person they care for
  • 65% concerned if they become ill
  • 45% of increased role due to local services being reduced
  • 47% Carers impacted financially
  • 78% Carers stated they had an increased caring role of 50+ hours a week of mainly personal care
