NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR CARERS-YOUR CHANCE TO INFLUENCE

The Government, via the Department of Health have launched a call for evidence to support the development of the National Carers Strategy.  To help them do this they are very keen to from the following groups of people;

* Unpaid family carers of all ages, so all your carers aged 24 and under make sure you get your views heard as well, ( I will be asking workers to follow this up with you in groups!!)

* Those who have someone care for them.

* Business who will be affected by employing carers....that's all businesses as 60% of us will be a carer at some point in our lives-have your say make sure we get it right for your workforce now.

* social workers, NHS staff and other professionals that support carers. You are in an ideal position to see how Services should operate, how support should be provided and the vital role unpaid family carers play.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR SAY AND INFLUENCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE STRATEGY
