Refreshed Joint Carers Strategy highlights commitment to supporting carers

Support for carers across the city, county and Rutland is outlined in theĀ Joint Carers Strategy Refresh 2022-2025 – Recognising, Valuing and Supporting Carers in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland which has been approved by Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and Rutland County Council.

This is a joint Strategy which has been developed by Leicestershire County Council, Leicester City Council, Rutland Council and the Integrated Care Board (ICB) across the LLR area. It commits all three councils to a shared vision and priorities for recognising, valuing, and supporting carers across Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland.

The aim is to help carers to continue in their caring role and maintain their own health and wellbeing. Priorities include identifying and recognising carers quickly so that they can get access to the right support.
