C. Priority: Physical and mental wellbeing

C. Priority: Physical and mental wellbeing

Outcome: Adult and young carers can access the support they need to maintain good physical and mental wellbeing

Actions will include:

  • We will help primary care surgeries to identify carers and offer or signpost them to appropriate support, including Carers Passports and vaccinations.
  • To prevent loneliness and isolation we will continue to develop a range of opportunities for carers to meet with other people, including other carers.
  • We will train school staff and other relevant agencies to be alert to issues affecting the wellbeing of young carers and to respond appropriately.
  • We will continue to offer counselling to carers based on their needs through Staffordshire Together for Carers.
  • We will provide employers with information on carers legislation, so that employers know how to take effective action to enable carers to balance their caring and employment responsibilities.

We will measure delivery of this outcome through:

  • % of adult carers who say in the Survey of Adult Carers in England and Staffordshire’s own survey:
    • I’m able to spend my time as I want, doing things I value or enjoy.
    • I have as much control over my daily life as I want.
    • I look after myself.
    • I have no worries about my personal safety.
    • I have as much social contact as I want with the people I like.
    • I feel I have encouragement and support.
  • Young carer feedback
