I am a registered carer for my sister who has Down Syndrome, Autism and is registered deaf and blind. As you will be aware Carers and those cared for often find many struggles within society and are treated very unfairly in many aspects society.
I am also a performer and i have been inspired to create a performance piece for carers in my region which i hope to be able to expand nationally one day.
I have applied to the Arts Council, England for funding to undertake a performance project for carers which through the performance will challenge perceptions and educate society in regards to carers rights.
The Arts Council are asking for more information in regards to how the project could make a positive influence on people who care for some ones life.
The project is looking very promising but they will not take the application any further, unless I can give them this evidence.
I am trying to circulate a online survey to ask if people could spare 2 minutes to complete it for me please. If you could that would be wonderful!http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZJ9JNHJ
I am based in South Yorkshire and if we get enough carers responses anyone one is more than welcome to be involved in the project.
Many thanks for your time!
