Carers survey to launch in October
Published: 27 September 2021
If you are a registered carer in Derby you maybe invited you take part in the national 2021-22 survey of Adult Carers in England. The survey is being carried out by the independent research organisation, Public Perspectives, on behalf of Derby City Council and NHS Digital.
The survey of adult carers in England will be sent out from Friday 1 October to a sample of carers throughout the city and will need to be returned by Tuesday 30 November 2021.
It has been developed to learn more about whether services received by carers are helping them in their caring role and their life outside of caring, and also about their perception of the services provided to the person they care for. The results will be used as part of the monitoring of the impact of the national carers strategy.
Councillor Roy Webb, Cabinet Member for Adults, Health and Housing, Derby City Council, said:
Carers do such an important job in our community, and the services that we provide must support them to do their great work. We are keen to learn more about their experiences – good or bad – in as much detail as possible as this will help us understand what it is like to be a carer in 2021.
If you do receive the survey then I encourage you to take part.
