Carer Engagement FAQs
Over the past few months, the county council along with local NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) has put together a draft strategy for carers. This strategy sets out a number of priorities to help us ensure carers in Staffordshire are supported to get the help they need.
As carers and professionals, we now need your help to make sure the priorities we have identified are the right ones, and if there is anything else we need to consider.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the draft carer’s strategy?

Where can I read the draft strategy?

As a carer, what does this mean for me?
The draft strategy will help you to understand your rights as a carer and what the council and the NHS will be focussing on to help you. The consultation gives you the opportunity to let us know if we have identified the right priorities and if there is anything we have missed.
How can I give my views on the strategy?
You can give us your views a number of ways:
How long can I have my say?
The consultation will be open for 12 weeks until 22 July 2019 to give carers an ample opportunity to have their say.
What happens next?
After 22 July 2019, we will look at all of the feedback received and use this to inform the final version of the strategy. We will let you know when this happens.
