Have Your Say – Oxfordshire Carers’ Strategy
The Oxfordshire Carers Strategy is for carers of all ages, their families and the professionals who work with them. It includes all carers who provide unpaid support to someone of any age living in Oxfordshire.
The Oxfordshire Carers’ Strategy 2017 (oxfordshire.gov.uk) set out the priorities carers wanted us to focus on.
- To identify carers and effectively support them, improving their health and well-being and providing opportunities for a break from their caring role.
- To safeguard the most vulnerable carers who need more support to look after themselves, particularly during times of change and transition.
- To encourage and enable carers to have an active life outside their caring role, including fulfilling their education, employment, and training potential.
It is important now to look at these priorities. To see how well we are meeting them, and if we need to change them. We have created a survey to collect your views.
