The experiences of ethnic minority carers

Healthwatch Kirklees want to support the Carers Strategy Group in Kirklees to understand the experience of ethnic minority carers as it is felt their voice is under-represented.

We also asked if faith, culture, gender or ethnicity impacted peoples experience as a carer.
