I am currently looking for participants to take part in my dissertation project which examines the well-being of working carers, a questionnaire taking no more than an hour of your time. I require non-professional carers (for a child, friend, family member, elderly parent), who juggle this with another job. For clarity I cannot unfortunately include anyone who is employed as a full time carer. So if this description applies to you or anyone you know, I would really appreciate being contacted.
