Report by Help and Care – 15 November 2021
The experiences of Wokingham Borough's unpaid carers during a global pandemic.
We asked Wokingham Borough residents who provide support to family and friends, for their stories, and asked "What can we learn?"
In 2020/21 Healthwatch Wokingham surveyed unpaid carers in the Borough to find out about their experiences of caring during the Covid pandemic. 89 carers completed our questionnaire.
• 2 out of 3 questionnaire respondents didn't know their rights as a carer. • 30% didn't know what a carer's assessment was. • 40% weren't registered as a carer with their GP.
