Self-employed carers survey

In order to gain a better understanding of the role(s) undertaken by the self-employed workforce of carers, we worked with Shared Lives and Community Catalysts to undertake an online survey.

This set out to examine the role of the self-employed workforce and their learning and development needs.

Our aim was to build a picture of the previous employment background of these workers and the skills, knowledge and qualifications that they have or think they need to have to carry out their role.
