Do you look after a family member or friend, or have a client that does? If you’re a carer – we’d like to hear from you!
We last wrote a strategy for carers in 2015 – and the world has moved on since then. That’s why we’re starting a conversation with carers to find out more about the challenges they face and what support would make the most difference.
How to get involved
The first step in our plan was getting out and talking to carers – we want to hear what it’s like to be a carer in Portsmouth, what challenges you face and how we can work together to improve the support we offer carers.
We hosted two events in February. There were people at the event from Portsmouth City Council, Solent NHS Trust and Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust.
If you couldn’t make it one of these sessions, but still want to get involved you can complete a short online survey. You can also call the Carers Centre 023 9285 1864 or visit their web page.
You can also sign up for the Health and Care Portsmouth mailing list – we’ll share the latest news about this consultation in this newsletter, which is sent monthly.
