Survey asks young carers and young adult carers how Coronavirus has affected them

A recent Carers UK survey found that 70% of carers are providing more care due to Coronavirus, with 35% of carers providing more care as a result of the closure or reduction of local services.

Carers Trust has launched a survey to find out how young carers aged from 12 up to 25 have been affected by Coronavirus, and what support they need.

The findings of the survey will help influence decision makers to give young carers and young adult carers the support they need.

Can you help young carers and young adult carers by adding your voice and filling out the survey? And please spread the word with your friends who are also young carers to make sure as many people as possible take the survey.

The survey is live now and will run up to 23 June.
