East Lothian Carers Strategy

Carer involvement and engagement

Have your say logo green

We want to make sure that carers are involved in:

  • developing and defining the Eligibility Criteria
  • carer service provision
  • hospital discharge of the cared-for person
  • (as much as they want to be ) the preparation of the ACSP/YCS and the amount of support received
  • preparing the East Lothian Carers’ Strategy.

The new legislation says that we must take into account the views of the carer (so far as is reasonable and practicable) when determining the needs for the cared-for-person being assessed and deciding what services to provide and how to improve them.  

Working with carers to shape the East Lothian Carer Strategy

We held our first major stakeholder engagement in June 2017 and the conversation continues in our Carers' Strategy Group.
