Care Act for Carers: One year on.

Has the Care Act made a difference one year on?
Carers Trust has launched a review of the Care Act to look at what difference it has made to unpaid carers one year on.
The call for evidence opens on 1 February 2016 and will run for seven weeks until 18 March. The findings will be reviewed by a panel of experts and advisers and the details will be released in a report in summer.

They want to hear from:


Carers, especially anyone who has received a carer’s assessment or support as a carer from their local authority since 1 April 2015,
Local and national organisations which provide support for unpaid carers,
Local authority and NHS carers leads and commissioners
health and care professionals who support carers

Here's a link to the online survey and if anyone needs a hard copy, please get in touch with the Carers Hub or the Carers Trust: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JMG7CGD
