Carer Awareness

The Government is committed to supporting carers as evidenced in the Carers Action Plan 2018-2020.  The plan aims to improve the health and wellbeing of carers and to support a better experience for them by:

Increasing the number of employers who are aware of caring and the impact this has on their workforce

Supporting health and social care professionals to be better at identifying, valuing and working with carers

We are here to support you to reach these objectives.

We can work with you through:

Bespoke training workshops

Talks at team meetings

Carer related leaflets; information; resources

Support to develop a Carer Pack

Support to develop a Carers Lead role for your organisation

Join us at our Carer Awareness Meetings

These sessions are open to all professionals, employers and community organisations. Representatives from Carer support groups also attend. The aims of meetings are to give you an opportunity to:

Deepen your understanding of the caring role

Gain fresh ideas on how your organisation can best serve Carers

By sharing ideas and listening to each other Herefordshire will become a place where Carers are valued.
