New male carers survey and expert Q&A event

The MHF is inviting men who look after a friend or family member unpaid to take part in our new survey to help us understand more about the needs of male carers.

The survey is part of a joint research project with Carers Trust on male carers.

To coincide with the launch of the research, Carers Trust are holding a Q and A event on their discussion boards, where we’ll have experts available to talk to male carers about their experiences as carers, including how it affects their own health.

The 2001 Census figures for the whole of the UK showed that, 42% of carers are men and 58% women. Carers Trust and the Men’s Health Forum are keen to increase understanding and awareness of the needs of male carers and how services can respond to their needs.

The survey will close on Sunday 23rd February 2014 and the results published in Spring 2014.

Complete the survey online here.

This joint project is part of the Men's Health Forum's work as a strategic partner of the Department of Health, NHS England and Public Health England.
