The Government is hosting meetings across the country in July and August to discuss what priorities it should focus on for family carers for the new Carers’ Strategy Action Plan. For the first time issues such as paid family care will be on the table for the Carers’ Strategy. This is a chance for carers and others who are interested in the issues, so come along to these meetings to help shape policy for the coming five years.
There is also an online survey and opportunity for written comment. Consultation closes on 16th August. Find out more about the venues and other ways you can contribute and comment on the MSD website.
