We're committed to working in partnership with the families and carers of people who use our services.
This includes anyone who is important in the life of the person using our services.
We want to involve families and carers in all aspects of our services.
We aim to recognise, value, include and respect carers. We treat them as expert partners at the heart of decision making for the person they care for.
All carers should have access to information to help them:
- make positive choices in their caring role
- improve their quality of life
