We believe that the law should provide better support for carers who wish to work.
We are working to have the law changed.  If you care for a disabled person please help us to gather evidence to support our case by completing this short survey.  It will not take long and will be very helpful.
Take Carer Survey

What age is the disabled person?

Do you work?

     
 
How many hours each week do you spend working?

 
Would you be able to work longer hours if you could work flexible hours, or if you could work from home?  

Please note that there are many ways you could work flexible hours, for example:

- Part time work (working less than full-time hours, usually by working fewer days);

- Compressed hours (working full-time hours but over fewer days);

- Flexitime (the employee chooses when to start and end work (within agreed limits) but works certain ‘core hours’, eg 10am to 4pm every day);

- Annualised hours (the employee must work a certain number of hours over the year but they have some flexibility about when they work. There are sometimes ‘core hours’ which the employee regularly works each week, and they work the rest of their hours flexibly or when there’s extra demand at work);

- Staggered hours (the employee has different start, finish and break times from other workers).
