The impact of caring during the pandemic may not have been felt equally by different groups in society, according to the latest data analysis by Carers UK.

The findings are revealed in the report The experiences of Black, Asian and minority ethnic carers during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, the charity’s analysis of unpaid carers’ responses to surveys conducted during the pandemic. The analysis found that carers from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds were:

  • more likely to be impacted by the closure of local services
  • more likely to state that the services in their area did not meet their needs
  • more anxious about their current financial situation
  • more likely to be struggling to make ends meet

This research builds on the charity’s ongoing work to understand the adverse impact of the pandemic on underrepresented groups.

The full report can be found here.
