Have Your Say
We offer carers the opportunity to influence services through our Carers Forum. The forum brings together carers looking after people with varying illnesses and disabilities. Carers have the opportunity to comment on changes to legislation, local plans for services and to discuss ways that services can be improved.
We support carers representatives on the local Joint Planning, Performance and Implementation Groups. Social work and health work with these groups to plan services.
