Carers Strategy Derbyshire 2020-2025

Carers Strategy 2020 - 2025 

The Carers Strategy was approved by Derbyshire County Council cabinet member for Adult Care and Health in March 2020 and we aim for system wide sign up to achieve the greatest benefits for local carers. The strategy sets out how carers who look after someone living in Derbyshire will be supported over the next five years and the delivery plan explains how the strategy will be put into action. 

The key priorities of the strategy are:

  • The early identification and support of carers
  • Provision of accurate, up to date information and advice
  • Improving carer health and wellbeing
  • Involving carers as experts
  • Early identification and support of young carers
  • Services and systems that work for carers
  • Recognising and supporting carers in the wider community
  • Carer employment and financial wellbeing

The strategy reflects what a range of unpaid, family carers and those who depend on carers have told us, to refresh our understanding of what carers want. The strategy has also been informed by many partner organisations in the local health, social care and voluntary sector who frequently support carers. Derbyshire County Council and NHS Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group would like to extend a huge thank you to the carers, professionals and partners who helped us to produce this refreshed strategy for carers. 

The strategy also takes into account new national/local policy and guidance that has been published over the last three years. 

The Carers Strategy Delivery Group, led by Derbyshire County Council and Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group will ensure delivery of this strategy. A detailed action plan and annual progress report will be produced to ensure accountability and visibility of the work and will be at found on this page.
