… about other services that impact you as a carer

Sometimes, there are opportunities for carers to contribute to discussions about services that impact on carers. These are organised by Adult Social Care or other health and social care services and voluntary organisations.

Adult and Young Carers Action Plans: The current Adults and Young Carers action plans aim to ensure the six principles of Sheffield’s Young Carer, Parent and Adult Carer Strategy are being put into action, and that the views of adult and young carers in Sheffield are being acted upon. If you are an adult carer (aged 18+) you can get involved in discussions about the plan with other carers and organisations that provide services for carers.
