B. Priority: Identifying Carers

B. Priority: Identifying Carers

Outcome: Adult and young carers, are identified, or can self-identify, so they will know where to go for support, keeping them well for longer and helping them avoid crisis

Actions will include:

  • We will provide our own local online carer awareness training and make it mandatory for social care professionals and promote and encourage uptake by health professionals.
  • We will explore the best use of digital solutions to identify adult carers early and help them to self-identify.
  • We will help primary care surgeries, often the starting point for a carer’s journey, to recognise carers and know where to signpost them for support in their communities.
  • We will work in partnership with schools to help them identify children and young people who care for a family member to ensure they are acknowledged and supported and referred to the appropriate professionals.
  • We will work to identify barriers and improve equality of access for carers to ensure that underrepresented groups are supported.

We will measure delivery of this outcome through:

  • % of adult and young carer population on the carer register for Staffordshire
  • Number of identified carer champions in primary care surgeries and schools
  • Ethnicity data from the carers support provider
