Carer Implementation Plan (2022 – 2024): Are we focusing on the key priorities?

Closes 18 Jul 2022

Opened 30 May 2022

Overview

According to Carers UK, more than 1 in 8 adults in the UK care for a family member or friend. This care is crucial to meet the needs of the growing population of older people and people with long-term conditions or disabilities, but the vital role often goes unrecognised.

The overarching aim of the Unpaid Carer Implementation Plan is to improve outcomes for unpaid carers, and ensure they feel valued and supported in their caring role. Covid-19 had a disproportionate impact on carers due to the increased amount of care that many provided. Covid-19 also resulted in many people taking on new caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends. Our Implementation Plan aims to ensure our residents who are providing unpaid care are recognised, valued and supported.

 

 

Why your views matter

Being a carer can be physically and emotionally draining, and can have an impact on a carer’s work, education, and health and wellbeing. The Unpaid Carer Implementation Plan aims to improve outcomes for unpaid carers, and ensure they feel valued and supported in their caring role.

We want to hear from you to ensure that we have identified the top three priorities that matter most to unpaid carers. The survey should take about 3 minutes to complete.

If you require support to complete this survey, please contact the Lewisham Carers Information, Advice & Support (IAS) Service on 0203 8860970
