Preparing for the financial impact of caring:
Could you help Carers UK to test a new online resource?
Carers UK is developing an online resource, Thinking Ahead, to help working-age adults prepare for the financial impact of looking after someone.
The aim of this work, funded by the Money Advice Service, is to make more people aware of the potential costs involved when friends or family need care, and to help people plan ahead for how they might approach this major life event.
When they've received feedback on the resource, they plan to develop it further in the New Year.
How can you help?
The overall goal of the Thinking Ahead resource is to increase the financial resilience of working age people.
There are three sections of the resource that we would like you to test:
