Welcome to Mobilise Moments
Mobilise Moments is a free daily survey. It takes just a few minutes and allows you to explore how you and other unpaid carers are experiencing life.
How it works
Every day we’ll send you a text message or email with a link to a two-question poll. We’ll ask you how you are and also the question of the day. You’ll then get the results from the previous day, where you can see how your response compares with other unpaid carers.
Mobilise exists to support unpaid carers, so we’ll be proactive in ensuring that you are OK through our carer support team of Suzanne, Chloe, Jacqui and Shirley!
Too little is understood about the lives of people looking after someone. By contributing you’ll be lifting the lid on our collective experience and making a difference.
We’ll collate the information and data and anonymously share this with local and central government, political parties, the NHS and other carer support organisations.

Examples of insights from Mobilise Moments
We asked unpaid carers “When did you last get a break from your caring role?” and were concerned (but not surprised) to see that 50% of our community have never had a break.
This is a worrying statistic, not least because we all need to refill the tank to keep on going but furthermore 19% of us have not taken a break since the COVID-19 restrictions began.
Clearly having no discernible break in the last 10 months (at the time of writing) or longer is not a sustainable situation. If this is you, you may like to read our blog: How to care for yourself, when there's not time to care for yourself.
