Still time to have your say on plans to support carers in Leicestershire

A consultation on the carers strategy is coming to an end
A consultation on the carers strategy is coming to an end

People are being urged to share their views on proposals to support carers in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland in a consultation that finishes at the end of this month,

There is still the chance to comment on the new Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Carers Strategy before midnight on 31 July.

The strategy has been developed jointly by Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and Rutland Council and the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and is a refreshed version of the LLR Joint Carers Strategy 2018–2021: Recognising, Valuing and Supporting Carers.

The refresh of the strategy aims to make it clearer and more accessible.

The consultation is seeking the views of public, carers themselves and the people they look after as well as organisations that work with carers, and council staff.

Looking after a person that you care about is something that many of us do.

If you’re a carer or you’re looked after yourself, please take part in the consultation and help us inform our final strategy.

Councillor Christine Radford, cabinet member for adults and communities

The consultation outcomes, the final refreshed strategy and an action plan for Leicestershire will be discussed by the council's Adults and Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee and Cabinet in the autumn.

To take part in the consultation visit the council's carers' strategy page.
