This measure shows the proportion of carers who are satisfied with social services, and is calculated from data collected in the Carers Survey.

The relevant question drawn from the Carers' Survey is Question 4: “Overall, how satisfied or dissatisfied are you with the support or services you and the person you care for have received from Social Services in the last 12 months?”.

The satisfaction with services of carers of people using adult social care is directly linked to a positive experience of care and support. Analysis of user surveys suggests that reported satisfaction with services is a good predictor of the overall experience of services and quality.
