The annual State of Caring survey has been undertaken for over a decade and is Northern Ireland’s most comprehensive research into the lives and experiences of unpaid carers.

The report includes an overview of the survey data and a wealth of stories and testimony provided by carers as part of the survey. Where appropriate, this is supplemented with wider evidence and research. 

The 2022 State of Caring survey was carried out between July and September 2022 and completed by 1,648 unpaid carers across Northern Ireland – the largest sample size in the survey’s history.  Click on the pic below to read the report.
