Find out about what the Carers’ Advisory Partnership has achieved.
As well as being a voice for carers across North Lincolnshire, Cap get involved in a range of projects with partner agencies, aimed at improving the lives of carers and the people they care for. Below are just some of the things we have achieved.
- Producing the Carers’ Guide
- Continued meetings with Adult Partnership
- Developing leaflets on personal budgets and direct payments
- Annual themed carers’ rights day event e.g. – 2017 Think Carer
- Quick guide to the assessment pathway
- Worked on issues relating to care agencies and their care workers
- All Age Carers Commissioning Strategy
- Hospital liaison officer for carers
- E-learning package for professionals
- Assisted in the production of the carers’ needs assessment guidance.
The Carers Guide was launched during Carers Week in June 2016. It includes key information that is useful to carers in an easily accessible format. The guide has been widely distributed across a range of venues in the area and is also available on line. The CAP has recently re-established the Partnership Working Group to review and refresh the guide to ensure it remains up to date and fit for purpose.
Personal Budget Information
Personal Budget packs were signed off in September 2016 then trialled in the Care Networks. Taking into account feedback received from carers, the packs have been revised and redistributed as appropriate.
Officers and carer members worked together to develop an e-learning package which encourages people to “think carer”, and provides real-life carer views and experiences.
