Sutton Joint Carers Strategy & Delivery Plan 2019 - 2023 Consultation

Closes 4 Feb 2019

Opened 21 Dec 2018

Overview

A Carer can be anyone who cares for a friend, or family member, who due to illness, disability, a mental health concern, or addiction, cannot cope without their support.

Many Carers do not recognise or want to identify themselves as a Carer, they are simply helping to support their spouse, child, friend or family member.

We are inviting comments on Sutton’s Joint Carers Strategy, which sets out our commitment to carers over the next four years.

Our strategy has been developed by listening to Carers views on what is important, through a series of engagement sessions which have taken place over the past year. Our Carers Strategy Reference Group, a self selected group of Carers and former Carers as well as Healthwatch Sutton, has guided and shaped our vision, outcomes and priorities, and have called for further consultation to be undertaken to confirm that our plans reflect the wider view.

Further information on how the draft strategy was developed and the draft Delivery Plan can be found in the link at the bottom of this page.

Why We Are Consulting

We recognise the pressures on you as Carers’ especially on your time, therefore our focus for this consultation will be to understand if Our Vision, Our Outcomes and Our Priorities set out in our Joint Strategy for Carers is right and or broadly in line with your views?

We therefore ask that you complete the short questionnaire by Monday 4 February 2019. The overall results will be shared with the Carers Strategy Reference Group and will be used to review our plans.

This questionnaire can be completed by carers living or working in Sutton, former carers, Sutton residents, professionals, other stakeholders or others on behalf of groups or organisations.
