Carer engagement FAQs

The All Age Carers Strategy jointly developed by Staffordshire County Council and local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), has been revised and redesigned following a 12-week period of public consultation.

The strategy is now in the final stages of approval. Following approval our task will be to deliver on the ambitions and priorities set out in the strategy, as well as look at the contracts we currently have in place. With this in mind, the council want to hear from you to understand what information, advice and support makes the biggest positive difference to carer’s lives and how assessment and support services for carers could be delivered in the future.
