Progress from the signatories during 2015/16
The Carers’ Charter has been produced by Carers of Herefordshire Carers Support to promote better recognition and support for Carers. Carers provide invaluable support to some very vulnerable people and this contribution needs to be valued, acknowledged and respected.
The Charter confirms the values, aims and standards that will be adopted by agencies working in partnership with Carers within Herefordshire. It will also be used to monitor outcomes for Carers.
The Carers’ Charter is based on the key National Standards and includes two further standards that reflect the need to see Carers in their own right and to have effective processes for assessing their needs. The standards are intended to describe what a good service to Carers should look like and to monitor outcomes for Carers.
