   NYCC Carers Strategy Consultation    12 June, 2017

"North Yorkshire County Council will publish a new strategy this summer in partnership with the NHS which focuses on the health and wellbeing of carers. It will be an all-ages strategy, aimed at supporting carers to both continue caring and to have a life of their own.

The strategy has been produced by the Health & Wellbeing Board for North Yorkshire, working on behalf of local residents. Three in five people will be a carer at some point and almost everyone will know a family member, friend or colleague who is currently a carer.

Following a period of engagement with carers and partners over the past year, reviewing what’s working and what needs to change, a number of themes for the draft strategy have been proposed. These are:

  • improving identification of carers
  • improving information and advice
  • enabling carers to take a break
  • improving carers health and wellbeing
  • enhancing financial wellbeing
  • involving carers as experts.

To make sure the themes, priorities for improvement and key commitments included in the draft strategy are right for carers and the people they care for, a six week period of formal consultation will run until 23 June. People can find out more about the carers strategy consultation online
