Our researchThe Supported Carer Project

The Supported Carer Survey forms a national survey designed to improve current understanding of technology use by carers and is funded by the University of Strathclyde and run in partnership with the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland and Carers Scotland.

The project aims to explore current and future technology use in carers both for their own health and wellbeing and for the health and wellbeing of others. Themes from the national questionnaire will later help inform the topics which will be explored further in focus groups. Findings from this work will be used to help inform research policy and current practice.
