Informal carers & poverty in the UK: An analysis of the Family Resources Survey

People who provide informal care in the UK play an important role in supporting people with support needs. Care roles are wide-ranging in terms of how much of their time is spent providing care and who they support. This research uses data from the Family Resources Survey 2013/14 to describe the situation of informal carers in the UK, and how being a carer has implications for employment, income and poverty.
