State of Caring in Northern Ireland 2019

19 November 2019

Every year, Carers UK carries out an annual survey of carers to understand the state of caring across the UK. This year over 8000 carers and former carers responded to the survey.

762 respondents who completed this year’s State of Caring Survey were from Northern Ireland making it the largest State of Caring Survey carried out by Carers NI to date.

The key findings highlight:

  • The financial impact of caring
  • The impact of caring on Health and Wellbeing
  • Issues affecting access to practical support
  • Uptake and experiences of Carers Assessments
  • Increasing numbers juggling work and care
  • The impact of costs, cuts and closures
  • Difficulties around planning for the future
