The Department of Health consultation on the Carers Strategy
Clinks submitted a response to the Department of Health consultation on the Carers strategy. Although the survey was primarily aimed at carers, it also offered an opportunity for other organisations to contribute information. We believe it is of the utmost importance that there is better identification of carers, including among those in prison and their families, and that they are able to access relevant information and advice. We need to improve services and other formal support for carers affected by the criminal justice system, ensuring that carers are fully involved in the design of those services.
