The Carers’ Advisory Partnership

Giving Carers a Voice Across North Lincolnshire

The Carers’ Advisory Partnership was founded to support unpaid carers in North Lincolnshire who provide care to adults or children with additional needs. The Partnership is here to help carers raise issues that impact on their own lives, health and wellbeing, which is often  matters facing the person that is being cared for.

We support carers by working closely with North Lincolnshire Council, North Lincolnshire NHS CCG and the Carers’ Support Service. We ensure that the carers’ voice is heard by agencies with the ability to create positive change. 

CAP meet once a month with members of the Local Authority, NHS and Carers’ Support Service, and this gives us the opportunity to have an input on policy development, influence change and find out about new initiatives that may benefit carers.

The Partnership was formed in 2009 following government publication of the Carers Strategy. Since then we have worked with the Local Authority to produce a strategy document to set out how they will support all people in North Lincolnshire, including carers, as well as on other projects.
