Carers' Centre Strategy

14/09/2017

Have your say in shaping our five year strategy:

North Tyneside Carers' Centre Strategy runs out at the end of 2017.  We want to make sure that carers have their say on the future direction of the Carers' Centre to help us deliver our mission to:

'Improve the quality of life for carers in North Tyneside'

Over the last five years our services have changed to meet the needs of carers and to cope with increased demand.  We have:

  • Developed peer support groups across the borough to increase opportunities for carers to access emotional support and share experiences with their peers
  • Developed a training programme which offers a wide range of opportunities for carers to learn new skills and gain confidence
  • Worked as a lead partner with North Tyneside Council and the Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver actions within 'North Tyneside's Commitment to Carers'
  • Worked with North Tyneside Council on the implementation of the Care Act 2014 and the Children and Families Act, regarding the increased rights of carers
  • Delivered carer awareness training across social care, health and education, to improve recognition and support for carers
  • Developed a model of family support to meet the needs of young carers
  • Expanded our breaks and activities service for young carers
  • Worked with local employers to identify barriers to carers seeking/maintaining employment

We understand that your time is very limited so we have organised three different ways for you to have your say:

  • Carers' Survey - complete online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/FKCJY8N
  • Telephone the Centre on 0191 643 2298 to request a hard copy of the survey
  • Attend a formal consultation about the strategy
