#28 | Results from 25th February

Here are the results from yesterday’s Mobilise Moments poll.

Working nine-to-five?

Yesterday we asked: Which of these best describes your current employment status?

Graph showing that 53% of carers had gained weight, whilst 32% had stayed the same.

When it comes to work, we're split between those working (38%), those not working due to their caring situation (30%) and those of us who are retired (26%).

As we grow our community of respondents to Mobilise Moments we're likely to see this change. Do recommend us to anyone you know that is in a caring role, so we can gain a much stronger insight into the lives of carers.

As with many of these polls - they trigger a multitude of follow up questions! What's your employment status, has it changed since you became a carer? If you stopped working, what would need to happen in order for you to go back to work? We'll start a conversation in our Facebook Group and would love to know your thoughts.

Until tomorrow, here's Dolly... who else!
