Vision

The vision for Warwickshire’s Joint Carers Strategy 2017 – 2020 is that Warwickshire is a place where carers can balance their caring roles and maintain their desired quality of life. We will do this by providing a carers support offer that aims to ensure:

  • All carers in Warwickshire are assisted to identify themselves as carers at an early stage
  • Carers are able to make informed decisions and exercise choice and control about care and support through the provision of accessible information and advice for themselves and the person they care for
  • Carers will receive personalised support, both for themselves and the person they care for, enabling them to have a family and community life
  • Carers will be supported to remain physically and mentally well
  • Carers will be supported to access the right services, at the right time, in the right place
  • Carers will be recognised, valued and empowered as “experts” in care.

We will commission an outcome focused carers support offer that will:

  • Support early identification of carers
  • Act as a single point of entry for Warwickshire carers
  • Ensure all carers receive an assessment of their needs (that is proportionate to their presenting needs)
  • Take an holistic approach to prevention, with a solutions focus
  • Ensure support is tailored to local needs, builds upon local assets
  • Incorporate a range of support services that are central to carer needs and requirements
  • Support Carers through an assets based approach, building on individual and community skills, knowledge, support networks and connections
  • Empower Carers to be as independent as possible at an individual and community level
  • Assist carers to maintain and/or improve their health and wellbeing
  • Assist carers to continue in their caring role
  • Be local and accessible to carers
  • Support transition of young carers into adults services where appropriate.
