Initial Consultation – Carers Strategy

East Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) is now consulting on a new Carer Strategy 2023-2026.  The consultation period runs until 31 December 2022.

The proposals set out in the Draft Carers Strategy Consultation Paper are suggestions only at this point.  We have tried to explain why we have arrived at the proposed priorities that are set out, but we are very conscious that there will be other points of view.  We want to open the process up to a fuller debate at this point.  Quite soon we will have to settle on what our Carers Strategy priorities are and then do more work to build the plan around these.  So this is the opportunity to influence the foundations of the plan that will take forward the work to support carers better over the next three years.

How to get involved

East Dunbartonshire HSCP have arranged to work in partnership with Carers Link to gather people’s views on the Strategy.

There will be a number of virtual meetings held during the months of November and December 2022.  In addition, we have set up a survey online and this can be accessed via the link below.  There is also the option of completing a printed questionnaire.  All survey results can be completed anonymously, however you also have the option of being added to a free prize draw.
