The Living Conditions of Unpaid Carers in the UK: the State of Caring 2017 Report (Carers UK)

Summary

The latest “State of Caring 2017” report reveals that four in ten of unpaid carers in the UK have not taken a break in over one year, and that one in four carers had not had a day-off from caring in five years. Such carers reported a deterioration in their health, both mentally (73%) and physically (65%).
