New research report by Carers UK released for Carers Week 2020.

The report estimates an additional 4.5 million people have become unpaid carers since the coronavirus outbreak began.  

Carers Week carried out polling with YouGov to revisit how many people are caring in the UK today, the challenges they face and what the public’s worries would be if they became an unpaid carer. We also looked at public awareness of unpaid caring, whether the public thought unpaid carers were valued and whether the Government had provided sufficient support.
