Carers in Solihull, this is a chance to have your say


share close

The 2021-22 survey of adult carers in England is being carried out locally by Solihull Council and Carers Trust Solihull on behalf of the government. The survey asks whether services received by carers are helping them in their caring role and their life outside of caring. It also asks for views about the services provided to the person they care for.


More than 27,000 carers across the borough provide unpaid support to a family member or friend because of illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem, or addiction.


A random sample of carers in Solihull has been sent the survey by post. Responses need to be returned by Tuesday, 30 November.


Cllr Tony Dicicco, Solihull Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Support, said: “Carers do such an important job in our community, and the services we provide must support them in their caring role. If you are selected to take part in the national survey, please share your views. The more people who take part, the more useful the results will be to help us shape future services for carers.”
