Joint All Age Carers Service consultation

This consultation is now closed.

Background

Cheshire West and Chester Council, Cheshire East Council and NHS Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group want carers of all ages in Cheshire to feel valued and empowered and to have access to the right support at the right time. We want carers to be involved in the development of future services for them as part of the commissioning of a new carers service.

We identified what we thought was important to carers and produced a proposal for the delivery of future services to support them which can be found in the downloadable information section.

We used what carers told us through the development of the All Age Carers Strategy 2021-26 (PDF, 33KB) which was co-produced with carers and consulted on in 2020, but we wanted to know if were getting it right. We wanted to hear from carers, parents and those involved in providing services in this sector.Cheshire West and Chester Council, Cheshire East Council and NHS Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group want carers of all ages in Cheshire to feel valued and empowered and to have access to the right support at the right time.
