Information and Advice

It is very important that carers and young carers should have access to the best information and advice. This will let them make the best decisions about their support needs.

Carers tell us that things would be better for them if they got the right information at the right time.

Carers need to be given information and advice that they can understand.

Question 9

Should we make it a rule that local authorities have to have information and advice services for carers and young carers?

Yes

No

Comments

The rules say that local authorities have to show their plans for carers' information to the Government. This won't be needed in future because the rules will tell all local authorities what kind of information they should give to carers.

Question 10

Do you think local authorities should have to show plans to the Government?

No
