Reform of Adult Social Care in Northern Ireland

In 2017, the Expert Advisory Panel on Adult Care and Support published a report called Power to People.  This report set out 16 proposals on how to reform the system.  The Department of Health has now published proposals on how to implement these recommendations.

You can view these recommendations here.  There is full consultation document and an easy read version available. 

A useful summary of the proposals, presented at our recent Carers Summit can be downloaded here.

You can respond directly to the Department of Health consultation here.  

Take part in our survey!

Carers NI will be submitting a response to the consultation and, to support this, will be gathering carers views and experiences. We have developed a short survey to help gather the views of carers.  You can take part in this survey here

We also gathered view from carers at our recent Carers Summit and will bring information from what carers have told is in a range of research and surveys, including the most recent State of Caring in Northern Ireland to our final response.

Join our focus group session!

On Wednesday 18 May 2022, 11am-12.30pm, we are also running a discussion group on Zoom to gather the views of carers. If you are available to take part, even for part of the session, please send an email to Geraldine at This email address is being protected from spambots.
