We have been contacted by the charity Contact a Family, which is carrying out a survey of the situation of carers who are raising a disabled child. This is what they told us:
Counting the Costs 2014: Help Contact a Family build the biggest ever picture of family finances
Thousands of families with disabled children and young people have already completed the Counting the Costs 2014 survey and Contact a Family are extremely grateful to everyone who has helped.
However, as all the political parties draw up their manifestos ahead of the general election in May 2015, it’s never been more important for family members who care for children and young people with additional needs to take part in this important research. By filling out the survey together we will can discover the true picture of family finances, the cost of living crisis and impact of welfare reforms affecting disabled children and their carers everyday across the UK.
The survey which should not take more than 20 minutes is open until mid June 2014.
