Mapping support for Carers – complete the survey

//Mapping support for Carers – complete the survey
West Yorkshire and Harrogate (WY&H) has been identified as one of six regions to work in partnership with NHS England to develop an approach to better support unpaid carers across our area.

There are an estimated 260,000 unpaid carers living in West Yorkshire and Harrogate, including children and young people caring for parents with long-term health conditions.Many carers are ‘hidden’ and provide the majority of care without formal support. Being a carer can be stressful and have a major impact on your health, relationships, education and employment.

With this in mind WY&H Care Partnership are working with NHS England to ensure that identifying carers and supporting them is further embedded within their work. This includes developing ways to support the existing and future workforce who balance caring responsibilities, signposting and identifying service standards for all organisations – not just in the public sector.
