On 8 November 2022, Carers UK published its State of Caring 2022 report.
Each year, Carers UK carries out a survey of carers to understand the state of caring in the UK.
A record number of carers and former carers shared their experiences this year, with over 13,400 carers taking part in the survey. 12,424 of these are currently providing care. This makes this the largest State of Caring survey carried out by Carers UK to date.
The report contains a snapshot of carers’ experiences in 2022, capturing the impact that caring has on carers’ lives and evidencing the policy recommendations that would improve this.
