Breaks or breakdown report released today for Carers Week

Content originally from Carers UK

To mark Carers Week a new report has been launched, entitled Breaks or breakdown, about carers’ experiences of breaks in the pandemic. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to the survey to tell us about your experiences. Because so many people like you have responded, it means that our work has greater impact.

You told us that your breaks had been significantly reduced during the pandemic, and that this was impacting your health and wellbeing. You can read the full results in the new report below:

We are using the results to raise with all politicians and decision-makers so that they can see what changes need to happen to improve carers’ lives, whether they be in the UK/England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
