Launch of Draft Hampshire Joint Carers Strategy
Hampshire County Council is asking for the views of carers.The draft Hampshire Joint Carers Strategy 2018 to 2023 sets out a new vision for supporting carers in Hampshire.
After a consultation event with carers in July 2016, the draft strategy was written by:
• Staff from the voluntary sector
• Health and social care professionals
The draft strategy sets out practical steps that health and social care organisations, with carers, will take over the next five years. The aim is to ensure that carers have good levels of health and wellbeing and are supported to maintain their caring relationships.
The document can be viewed online by visiting: http://documents.hants.gov.uk/adultservices/carers/draft-carers-joint-strategy.pdf
You can give your feedback via the online questionnaire. We will be sending the strategy out to groups on our stakeholder distribution list. Please do also circulate more widely to carers and groups that may be interested in giving feedback. You may also wish to add your website/Twitter/Facebook etc :
There is also a carers email account set up for queries on the strategy: email@example.com
The consultation is open until Wednesday 28th February 2018.
All feedback will be considered and used to inform the final strategy which will be published Spring/Summer 2018.
