Consultation Response

Response to Northern Trust Carers Strategy

03 October 2011

Carers Northern Ireland welcomes all initiatives that move people away from being just passive consumers of care services. We welcome the Trust's Carers Strategy as a clear statement of the Trust's plans and intentions in support of carers. We believe that it will be useful for staff and carers alike. We are pleased to see that issues raised by Carers Northern Ireland at pre-consultation stage, particularly around Carer Engagement, have informed the current draft of the strategy. This is an encouraging sign of the Trust's commitment to developing a partnership approach to its work with carers.

We look forward to seeing how the strategy's proposals help create the conditions where carers are respected and valued as equal partners in health care provision and where carers' rights to choose their caring role and to have a life outside of caring are upheld.
