SIT? Evidence review on how third sector carer organisations support unpaid carers achieve their personal outcomes

The literature review explores the evidence around carers outcomes and the impact of the caring role. This is far from a comprehensive review of the formal research evidence. Rather, examples have been selected to evidence short, medium and longer-term outcomes for carers, as outlined in the logic model for the project. This is partly an adaptation of a previous literature review for A Stitch in Time?

A total of 18 studies were included, representing formal academic research as well as research by voluntary organisations, or both.
