F. Priority: Short and longer-term planning

F. Priority: Short and longer-term planning

Outcome: Adult and young carers have the opportunity to develop effective contingency and long-term plans for when they cannot provide care and we will respond promptly should crisis occur

Actions will include:

    • Help to develop contingency plans and plan for the future will be offered to all newly registered carers and following an assessment.
    • We will work with young carers to develop a “What to do in an Emergency” plan.
    • We will ensure carers know how to get help in the event of a crisis.
    • We will ensure that eligible carers can access a break from caring.
    • We will ensure that professionals working with families take a whole family approach, can recognise a potential crisis or where a longer-term alternative plan for care may be required and help to put arrangements in place.

We will measure delivery of this outcome through:

    • Number of contingency and longer-term plans carried out by our carers support service.
    • Number of referrals due to carer breakdown.
