This strategy sets out our priorities for the next five years.
More than three in five of us will become unpaid carers at some point in our lives and many of us won’t immediately recognise the impact it is having on our lives. Caring needs to be recognised and valued. Carers should find it simple and easy to interact with health and care systems. They should be able to access the information, advice and support they need. They should have an opportunity to have a life outside their caring role.
This strategy draws on the views, learning, experiences, ideas, and aspirations of unpaid carers and young carers and the services that work with them. It sets out our priorities for the next five years. By tackling these together, we can help local residents caring for their loved ones feel that they live in a local borough that is recognising their role and supporting them to access the support they need.
