Carers UK surveyed 4,282 carers between September 2010 and July 2011 to examine the financial pressures of caring, and these pressures have on carers' health. The sample included carers from the 4 nations of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This report presents the key findings. Carers identified the extra costs of caring, the need to cut back to save money, debt and worry due to financial hardship. The report lists a number of recommendations including a reform of carers' benefits, support to help carers juggle work and care, tackling fuel poverty and the funding of social care.
