Carers - please help us to help you

If you are a carer you may receive a letter in the post in the next few weeks asking you to take part in a national survey about being a carer.

The aim of the survey is to help us improve and develop services for carers so will ask for your views on the support provided to help you with the person you look after and in particular, how your caring for others has affected your own quality of life.

All answers are completely confidential. For more information, contact Nadia Husain on 020 7361 2552, freephone 0800 587 0072 or e-mail
