This report presents the results of a nationwide Carer Consultation exercise that took place in October and November 2007. The consultation was led by the Carers Association in partnership with the other main carer organisations, Caring for Carers Ireland and Care Alliance Ireland. Part-funding for the Consultation was provided by the Equality Authority as part of its activities for 2007’s European Year of Equal Opportunities for All. The Consultation was intended to provide an up-to-date perspective on the experiences and concerns of carers across the country. It presents some timely insights into what issues need to be prioritised in the forthcoming national Carer Strategy. The focus was on family carers, people who provide care and support for family members or relatives who need help because of frailty in old age, disability or long-term illness. A total of 428 carers attended the 8 consultation sessions that were held across the country, representing a broad spectrum of carers and caring circumstances.
