Planning and giving services
Most local authorities have plans for carers. Some are made with help from local Health Boards. Some local authorities have plans for young carers.
We think that local authorities, Health Boards, other organisations and carers should work together to make plans for carers' support.
Should we make a rule that all these organisations must work together with carers to make plans?
Should these plans be looked at and updated every three years?
The law doesn't say that local authorities with Health Boards have to give carers counselling, advocacy, short breaks and other kinds of support. We think this should change.
Should we make it a rule to have a range of services available for carers and young carers?
