Carers’ Voice exists to gather the views of Carers into the services and support them and those they care for receive from the county’s health and social care providers.
“We then present what we learn to the people that plan and deliver those services to persuade them to ensure what they provide actually meets the needs of ourselves and those we care for. We are independent of all service providers. Your representatives in Carers’ Voice sit on several influential decision-making forums in the county and are increasingly being listened to as the shortage of public finance demands that more care take place in the community and all funds are spent wisely. The recent widely publicised financial problems of the County Council make it all the more urgent and important that we do this well.”
To represent you well, Carers’ Voice needs to know what you think is needed and about your experience of the county’s services. They mentioned the urgent need to grow the numbers of Carers together with the varieties of care they provide so that they can carry out this challenging role on your behalf most effectively. But Carers’ Voice needs to keep their costs down so they will mostly be relying upon a community of carers that they can reach electronically with questionnaires that are appropriate to their particular experiences of care. Their questionnaires will not take long to complete.
