In this report, we explore public mindsets on care work in the second year of the Culture Change Project, focusing on data collected between September 2021 and October 2022. We also explore the salience of care work over this period, in comparison to the previous year, and have mined our data to address some of the other key questions identified in the previous report, Public Thinking About Care Work in a Time of Social Upheaval: Findings from Year One of the Culture Change Project.
