This research comes when there are very few studies on the experiences of carers in Ireland. The study aims to:

  1. Obtain an accurate reflection of what lay carers experience while looking after someone with a mental and or/physical disability or other condition
  2. Form a clear picture of the issues, concerns and support required for voluntary carers.
  3. Use the results so-obtained to influence forward planning of service delivery to carers by all organisations involved in such care-provision.
