  • Carers Week 2020 Research Report

    Created: 09/06/2020

    Carers Week carried out polling with YouGov to revisit how many people are caring in the UK today, the challenges they face and what the public’s worries would be if they became an unpaid carer. They looked at public awareness of unpaid caring, whether the public thought unpaid carers were valued and whether the Government had provided sufficient support.

    Using population projects, Carers Week found that there are an additional 392,000 unpaid carers in Scotland since the coronavirus outbreak and 227,000 more workers are juggling work and unpaid care since the COVID-19 outbreak.
