Carers Assessments

Carers Assessments

Assessment for all young carers and newly registered adult carers are undertaken by the First Contact Team in Staffordshire County Council. Assessments for ongoing adult carers are usually done by social care district teams.

The First Contact Team, who do the greatest proportion of single carer assessments, carry out a regular customer satisfaction survey; 76% of carers who were assessed by the Team told us that the assessment wholly met their needs, with comments that the assessment process was professional, informative and staff personable and empathetic.

In September 2023, 1514 adult carers and 411 young carers were registered with our carers support service, Staffordshire Together for Carers. This equates to 2% of all adult carers and 25% of all young carers in Staffordshire.

94% of Staffordshire’s population describe themselves as from White British communities. Staffordshire Together for Carers data shows that 97% of new carers accessing the service in 2022/23 were from White British communities, which suggests an under representation of other population groups that requires further analysis.
