We’re shaping our future plans for supporting the vital role which carers play across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Part of that work is to deliver a carers’ strategy over the next three years.
There’s a drop-in event at Leicester City FC’s King Power Stadium next week (Wednesday, 13 July, 1pm – 3pm). Come along and share your views on our plans and you will also get the opportunity to meet support organisations for local carers as well as information being available for young carers.
There will also be mindfulness sessions and seated exercises.
The carers’ strategy has been developed jointly by Leicestershire County Council, Leicester City Council, Rutland County Council and the Clinical Commissioning Groups, which commission health care services. (CCGs).
The strategy is being refreshed to make it clearer and more accessible with the consultation seeking the views of a wide range of individuals and organisations, including carers, people receiving care services and council staff.
Looking after a person that you care about is something that many of us do, but often people do not see themselves as a carer.
Caring can be very rewarding, helping a person develop or re-learn skills, or simply helping to make sure your loved one is as well supported as they can be.
We want as many people as possible to take part in this consultation and help us inform our final strategy. So, whether you’re a carer, you’re looked after yourself or you are part of the wider care industry, please have your say.Person:
Councillor Christine Radford, cabinet member for adults and communities
The consultation closes at midnight on 31 July
