Getting involved

Survey of Adult Carers in England (SACE)

In October, we will be sending the Survey of Adult Carers in England (or carers' survey) to a sample of around 800 unpaid carers living in Central Bedfordshire who look after a family member, partner or friend in need of support or services. This is part of a mandatory survey carried out by all councils in England, on behalf of NHS Digital.

The survey asks for views on whether services received by unpaid carers help them in their caring role, their life outside of caring and their perception of services provided to the cared for person. It is important as it helps us to understand what works and what needs improving, and to ensure that we are getting our services right. 

The results will be used by organisations such as the Department of Health, NHS Digital and the Care Quality Commission, as well as us, to see how happy people are with care and support services and assess their experiences of local care services.
