State of Caring 2019: Unpaid carers face bleak financial future

Taken from Carers UK's website: 

Our new research, State of Caring 2019, paints a worrying picture of families under immense strain and an underfunded social care system that is really taking its toll on families and their finances. The research also gives us a clear view of carers' experiences that can be used to inform policy and practice.

Each year Carers UK surveys thousands of carers to find out about the impact of caring on their lives and provide a snapshot of what it's like to be a carer in our State of Caring Report. This year over 8,000 carers and former carers completed our survey, making it our biggest survey yet!
