State of caring 2016

This report shows that, one year on from the implementation of the Care Act 2014 – designed to improve support for carers – carers in England are still struggling to get the support they need to care well, maintain their own health, balance work and care, and have a life of their own outside of caring. It calls for the government, local authorities and health bodies to redouble their efforts to support England’s 5.4 million unpaid carers, arguing that squeezed public services and financial pressures are pushing carers to the brink.
