How can we improve support for carers?

The Department of Health is looking to develop a new strategy for carers and to help them do so they would like to hear from carers, those who have someone care for them, business, social workers, NHS staff and other professionals that support carers.
 
The question they are asking is ‘how can we improve support for carers?’ and they have created a survey which you can respond to yourself and / or pass on to others who you feel would be interested in taking part.
 
The survey can be found here: https://consultations.dh.gov.uk/carers/how-can-we-improve-support-for-carers
