'Guiding support for family carers'

Supporting Research

Supporting high quality research on issues which affects family carers is a core action within our current Strategic Plan. As such, we carry out a number of activities related to driving the research agenda forward on family carer issues.

We collaborate across the sector both nationally and internationally to support and undertaken high-quality research. You can see some of our past projects

We publish literature reviews and highlight recommendations for future research in our Discussion Paper Series.

We co-ordinate the Family Carer Research Group which brings together academics, students, family carers and not-for-profit researchers for peer-support and collaboration. 

We are happy to discuss the dissemination of research projects across our membership and social media channels where appropriate. 

Our Policy & Research Officer Zoe is available to advise on research matters pertaining to family carers, and is particularly keen to support student and early-stage researchers. To that end, she coordinates a private online social and peer-support group for students who are undertaking projects related to family carers. 

You can contact Zoe about any of these activities by email (
