Carers Week Survey

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
In June 2007 the thirteenth annual Carers Week will highlight the impact being a carer can have on your career, your finances, your health, and on relationships with friends and family.

The Carers Week partners are conducting a survey will enable us to hear your views and experiences, and help us to ensure that Carers Week:

- Recognises and celebrates the contribution made by carers
- Campaigns for better support and services for carers
- Promotes policies and best practice that can improve carers' quality of life
- Reaches out to 'hidden' carers, ensuring they know where support can be found

The results of this survey will appear in the media, will be sent to every MP, will be circulated to key decision-makers and opinion-formers, and will help to form the evidence and create the momentum that can achieve positive change for carers.

This survey should only take a few minutes of your time to complete and needs to be completed by 30 March 2007 at the latest.

You can find the survey at

I won't be filling it in, it's to 'invasive' to many personal questions
I dont' like the 'intimate' questions and they should be scrapped right away.
The survey form contains many technical errors including putting the 'sensitive' questions too soon. Name and address details should not have appeared on the form at all.
However that said, everyone is free to choose which questions to answer, and which to ignore. But you have to be careful because sometimes questions are repeated in a different format in the hope the repondent will not realise he / she has given 'sensitive' information, or to verify previous answers from the point of view of the person writing the survey.
Sorry Norman. The survey form won't move on at all if you complete it online and miss out your personal details. They are required - which is not the same, of course, on the paper version. I happen to find online completion much more convenient because of the time constraints I work in at home. So no form for me, it seems.
Hi Charles, only thing I can think of is to give the address of the town hall and call yourself M.R. Mayor

Thanks Norman! Image Image Image
I quite understand the hesitation some folks are showing. However, this is a big chance to say how you are affected as a carer and in what specific areas improvements could be made. It is possible to fill the form in without leaving too much detail. I think there was only one 'intimate' question which hardly needs your saying you can no longer swing from the chandelier or any other physical details which you regard as personal and private.
But I appreciate your right to remain silent.

No I don't accept that explanation, it is to invasive in many ways and badly thought out, by all means give as much detail as you want but remember when charities are asked to help the government chase people off benefits that this place will have your details
Sorry carer_j but I am afraid the 'hunting out the ineligibles' does not bother me. I am of the opinion that civil liberties costs us millions, and whilst I am aware of the '1984 Big Brother is watching you problem' I feel the powers that be can have my DNA, bank details, fingerprints, shoe size or whatever they want. If they want to take away my DLA (wife's), then if the laws says they are right, then let them get on with it.
Meanwhile, let's try and get more for those that need it and fill the questionnaire in!
