State of Caring Reports

Every two years Family Carers Ireland conducts the State of Caring survey, Ireland’s most comprehensive survey to better understand the lives and experiences of family carers. In 2020, over 1,200 carers shared their experiences of caring. This allowed us to highlight the impact of being a carer to the media, in evidence submissions to the Government and in reports that influence decision makers and policy makers in a wide range of areas.

The second State of Caring survey opened in January 2022. Findings from the second State of Caring research will be published in summer 2022.
