No Longer Able to Care report released by Carers Trust
Carers Trust have released their No Longer Able to Care report and resources.
The report looks at the importance of supporting carers to plan for a future when they are less able or unable to care and the resources help commissioners, providers and frontline staff to support carers at this important stage of caring.
Commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care, and completed through the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, the report looks at the importance of supporting carers to plan for a future when they are less able or unable to care. It explores what needs to be done to ensure that carers from communities that face additional barriers to accessing services get the support they need – the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, the Gypsy and Traveller Communities and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities. The report explores the experiences of carers from these communities and emphasises the need for all services to be open to all sections of the community. FaithAction also contributed to this report by running focus groups with BAME carers.
There are resources for commissioners, providers and frontline staff which will help them in making sure their services enable carers to plan for the future and consider the needs of carers from communities who face additional barriers.
