Carers Trust is inviting any men who look after a friend or family member unpaid to take part in a survey to help them understand more about the needs of male carers.
The survey is part of a research project Carers Trust is carrying out in partnership with Men's Health Forum on male carers.
To coincide with the launch of the research, Carers Trust are holding a Q&A event on their discusson boards, where experts from the Men's Helath Forum will be available to talk to make carers about their experiences, 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 indrease understanding and awareness 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.
