Carers ages 16-18 years needed for Survey

Wednesday, August 29, 2018 - 21:30

Are you a young carer aged 16-18?

Do you help support a family member who has a long term illness or disability?

Would you like to have your say about support for young carers?

Researchers at Edge Hill University would like to know your views on what questions are important to ask young carers. These will be used to develop a new screening form to help young carers get the right support at the right time.

The first survey we sent out was completed by 28 young carers and 68 people who work with young carers. From the results we could see which questions both groups agreed or disagreed were important to include.

We would like you totake part in this second shortersurvey that will just ask you to rate the questions the groups disagreed on.It does not matter if you did not take part in the first survey, we still want to hear your views. The survey is anonymous, and you will not be asked your name. Further information about the study is available by clicking on the link below:
