Consultation on Carers Strategy

Last changed: Tuesday 9 August, 2016

Feedback sessions for local carers

The Department of Health (DoH) are undertaking a consultation in order to develop a new Carers Strategy, regarding improving support for carers.

“We think that we need a new strategy for carers setting out how we can do more. One which reflects their lives now, the health and financial concerns they have, and gives them the support they need to live well whilst caring for a family member or friend.

To help us develop the strategy, we want to hear from carers, those who have someone care for them, business, social workers, NHS staff and other professionals that support carers.”

To help carers in our area have their say in this important consultation, we have arranged drop in sessions at our offices with Carers’ Resource Director, Chris Whiley, where you can share your thoughts about how support for carers can be improved.
