Nearly four out of 10 carers spend more than 100 hours a week looking after their loved one, leaving some feeling isolated and lacking practical help, a major poll has found.

The survey of almost 57,400 carers for the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) found 15% were unable to do anything they valued or enjoyed due to their caring responsibilities.

Fewer people than in 2012/13 said they had total control over their lives

When asked to rate their satisfaction with support and services received in the last 12 months, 15% were extremely satisfied, 26% were very satisfied, and 33% were quite satisfied.

Some 6% were quite dissatisfied, 3% were very dissatisfied and 3% were extremely dissatisfied, all up on the previous survey.

Overall, 38% of carers said they spent 100 hours or more per week looking after the person they cared for, up on the 36% in 2012/13 without carer breaks.
