Reach out to hidden carers in your area

  • Comment

From 1 April 2015, the Care Act will require healthcare professionals to work more closely with local authorities to identify and support carers better.

Our background guidance and practical tips can help you take simple steps to implement the legislation in your workplace.

Carers Week 2015 takes place from 8-14 June, and this year’s theme is ‘building carer friendly communities’. Can you use this as an opportunity to reach out to hidden carers in your area? To hold an event in your community or find out more about local support available to carers, register on the Carers Week page.
