We would like your feedback on our draft Carers Strategy, drawn up in partnership with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM) and Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead Clinical Commissioning Group (WAM CCG).
In the UK, more than 6.5 million people care, unpaid, for friends or family members who are ill, frail or disabled. According to the 2011 Census there are known to be 13,235 carers in RBWM.
This strategy sets out the commitment that health and social care will make to carers for the period 2014-2017. This commitment recognises the crucial role that carers play in the life of the person they care for, the support they require to continue carrying out this role as well as their need for a life outside of caring.
Please note: the consultation closes on 2 July 2014 at noon.
