Surrey Heartlands Health and Care Partnership, which includes Surrey County Council and other partners, has worked alongside Frimley Clinical Commissioning Group to publish a new carers strategy which pledges a commitment to improve and develop services to better support unpaid carers.
People may not see themselves as carers, rather seeing caring as an extension of their family role: daughters, sons, or partners, for example, doing what families and friends do. Making sure carers are identified, recognised, respected as partners in care, and offered advice and support if needed at the earliest opportunity is at the centre of the strategy.

The strategy sets out our values and priorities, reaffirming the commitment and determination to help carers continue caring if they are willing and able, and to support their health and wellbeing.
