Having your voice heard as a carer can be tough. Empowering carers in our communities to have their voices heard helps promote direct involvement and influence improvement in planning and delivering health and social care services.

National Care Service - Carer Consultation

Social care is important. This has been made even clearer in the pandemic. We want high-quality services for everyone that needs them. We want the system to support people to do the best they can.

The Scottish Government asked the Independent Review of Adult Social Care to look at how adult social care could be made better. The Independent Review recommended a National Care Service.

We want to know your views on the proposals as unpaid carers are the cornerstone of social care, providing more care than the health and care workforce combined. It is essential that carers have their views heard and are fully involved in driving forward improvements to structures, systems and services.
Lanarkshire Carers will be submitting an organisational response on behalf of our members.

This is an extensive survey and it will take at least 15 minutes to complete - so grab a cuppa and get comfy! Please note it is not necessary to answer all questions.

Our consultation closes on Friday 15 October 2021 at 12pm.
