Local Carers Survey 2016/17 - findings now available

Derbyshire County Council have published the findings from last year’s Carers Survey.

The results form part of the Personal Social Services: Survey of Adult Carers in England (SACE) - which local authorities with responsibility for providing adult social care services are required to run every two years. Carers are chosen at random from the Council's database and asked to take part in the survey

The survey asks questions about carers quality of life and the impact that services have on this. It also collects information on the general health and wellbeing of carers.

The results are very useful in helping local service providers to understand more about the carers that live in Derbyshire and the valuable job they do in supporting people who would otherwise struggle to manage.

You can view an infographic which summarises the survey findings and compares them to results in other local authorities.

In the last few weeks, Derbyshire County Council (DCC) have been sending out this year’s questionnaires to around 1,000 carers in Derbyshire. As this is DCC’s own Carers Survey - and not part of the SACE - they hope to be able to report on the findings much sooner.
