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.

Question 21

Should we make a rule that all these organisations must work together with carers to make plans?

Yes

No

Comments

Should these plans be looked at and updated every three years?

Yes

No

Comments

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.

Question 22

Should we make it a rule to have a range of services available for carers and young carers?

Yes

No
