WLCC Carers Survey 2023

Carers Survey

Purpose of the survey

Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre and Wigan Council are working together to understand the experiences of carers across the Wigan and Leigh Borough. We want to know what’s most important to you, so that we can commission services that offer the right support to carers.

A carer is anyone who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help and cannot cope without their support. The person they care for may need help because of illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction. The care they give is unpaid.

The contribution that unpaid carers make is vital, we want to recognise and value what you do and put things in place that support you throughout your journey as a carer. Taking a few minutes to share your experiences in this survey will help us ensure that future Carers’ Support Services meet your needs.

  • The survey covers informal, unpaid carers aged 18 or over.
  • For those who complete the survey – there is an opportunity to win one of 3 x £100 cash prizes, as a thank you for sharing your views.  For entry into the prize draw, you would need to leave your contact details.
  • Surveys can be completed anonmously, if you so wish.

What will we do with the information?

We will analyse all the responses to this survey, and write a report that identifies important themes in what people tell us. This will influence the way we commission the Carers’ Support Service, and help us in setting priorities across Wigan and Leigh.

We will not share or publish any information which identifies individual responses, but may use anonymous quotes from people’s answers to highlight themes.

The final date for completed surveys is Sunday 19th February 2023, 7 pm.
