Carers may register with a range of organisations for different purposes-there is no single register as such.

The NHS Information Centre for health and social care does not collect the number of registered carers.

The number of carers aged 65 and over offered an assessment or review by Staffordshire county council was 1,130 in 2007-08 and 1,260 in 2008-09 (provisional).

Data at constituency level are not centrally available.
