Survey: calling all male carers

06/10/20 . News

Many men are unpaid carers. If you’re one, Carers Trust want to hear from you. 

They’re surveying all unpaid carers on what support you need in your caring role from government. The survey also asks how social care reform could support carers more effectively.

At least 40% of unpaid carers are male, that’s a hidden group of about 2.5 million men. It’s time for that group to be heard.

The findings of the survey will help inform a Carers Trust campaign to improve the future support available to carers from the government. 

The survey is live and will run up to 18 October. 

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
