Online advice to carers: an updated review of local authority websites in England

Project Details


Funded by the NIHR School for Social Care Research, this rapid study examined the provision of online information for unpaid carers during the Covid-19 pandemic in England. It follows a similar NIHR SSCR-funded study conducted in 2016, led by Professor Liz Lloyd. Publicly available information on the websites of 150 local authorities in England was searched (August – December 2020) to identify support available to carers. We aimed to identify:
1) how local authorities use their websites to inform and advise carers about support and services available to them;
2) how support and services for carers are affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
