‘No choice but to care’ report launched 

A new report has been published by the coalition of charities involved in Carers Week. 

‘No choice but to care’, which includes data from YouGov polling, documents that many unpaid carers feel they have no choice about taking on an unpaid caring role due to a lack of alternative care options. It also looks at the impact their caring role has on their life and health. 

The report makes recommendations, including the creation of a National Carers Strategy, benefit reforms and more support for working carers.
