UK Report: Caring Behind Closed Doors: Forgotten Families In The Coronavirus Outbreak

UK report: Caring Behind Closed Doors: Forgotten Families in the Coronavirus Outbreak

Released in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, this report from our member Carers UK looks at the profound impact the coronavirus crisis is having on carers’ lives.

Carers UK’s survey into the experiences of over 5,000 current and former carers found that:

  • 70% of carers are providing more care due to the coronavirus outbreak.
  • Over a third (35%) of carers are providing more care as a result of local services reducing or closing.
  • Carers are, on average, providing 10 additional hours of care a week.
  • 69% of all carers are providing more help with emotional support, motivation, or keeping an eye/ checking in on the person they care for.
