All Age All Carers
Carers are important and play a vital role in our communities. They provide essential care to those who need help and support with daily living.
Carers need and deserve support. This strategy is intended to make sure that they get the help to:
- care well and safely
- look after their own health and wellbeing
- realise their education and employment potential
- don’t feel isolated or unable to cope
- have a life of their own alongside caring responsibilities
The All Age Carers Commissioning Strategy [PDF, 937Kb] outlines the commissioning intentions for all carers across North Lincolnshire.
By understanding the needs of our carers, Health and Social Care Service providers can design, shape and transform services to meet these needs. Working with partners, providers and our communities, we can develop and design services that will achieve improved outcomes for carers and the people they care for.
This Commissioning Strategy is underpinned by a delivery plan that provides a framework for effective commissioning including key quality and performance measures. The delivery plan will be co-produced together with carers, providers and the workforce. It will be monitored through the Carers Strategy Group.
You are a carer if …
In North Lincolnshire a carer is considered to be someone who helps another person, usually a relative or friend, in their day to day life. This is not the same as someone who provides care professionally or through a voluntary organisation.
Young carers are children and young people who often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult.
