G. Priority: Recognition and value

Outcome: Carers feel valued and respected as an expert partner in care

Actions will include:

  • We will increase the numbers of carers champions in primary care and schools.
  • We will support social care staff to recognise, positively engage and respect carers.
  • We will involve adult carers in assessments, care planning, decision making and reviews, and universally recognise and support them as ‘Expert Partners in Care’.
  • We will run regular communications to identify, support and celebrate carers using opportunities including Carers Week, Carers Rights Day and the Dignity in Care Awards.
  • We will work with businesses to help build carer friendly communities and recognise and support carers.
  • We will promote the use of discount cards and schemes for carers.

We will measure delivery of this outcome through:

  • % of carers who have been involved or consulted as much as they want to be about support or services provided to the person they care for.
  • % of carers who have had encouragement and support in their caring role.
  • Nominations of unpaid carers for the Dignity in Care Awards.
  • Number of staff who have undertaken carers awareness training.
