A survey of adult carers in Derbyshire has indicated a decline in people’s satisfaction with services provided to support carers. This news comes despite a significant investment of nearly £2 million into carers services by the Local Authority.
From January-March 2019 Healthwatch Derbyshire is set to engage with a wide range of carers to help Derbyshire County Council identify how they can best respond to the challenges people face and decide on which steps to take to try and improve services.
Carers experiences will feed into the Derbyshire Carers Strategy, due to be published in 2019, and also be used to highlight which services are working well and therefore need to be protected in these financially restrictive times.
Key themes to be explored by Healthwatch Derbyshire during this piece of work
