DEARDEN, C. and BECKER, S., 2004. Young carers in the UK: the 2004 report. London: Carers UK
This is the report of the third national survey of young carers who are being
supported by specialist young carers projects across the UK. Throughout the
report, where appropriate and for comparison, we refer to the two previous
surveys conducted in 1995 and 1997 (Dearden and Becker, 1995, 1998).
The 2004 Report is based on data collected from 87 projects concerning a
total of 6,178 young carers – the largest survey of its kind.
