Background Information

This will be a joint strategy / framework for action developed by the London Borough of Lambeth (Adult Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services) and NHS Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group. It is not intended as the last word on what must be done in relation to “carers” but will provide a framework for action and collaboration between commissioners, providers, clinicians, staff and carers. The proposed outcomes and priorities for action will be informed by the views of families, carers, Carers Hub Lambeth and stakeholders gathered from a range of surveys, service development work and engagement events.

It is important to note that not all carers are the same and can be any age. Their perspective of their caring role ranges from a “blessing” to a “burden” and everything in between. There are people who are happy to be defined as a carer, those who would not consider themselves a carer and people who do not want to be recognised as a carer. Carers experiences are dynamic and variable throughout the day, week, and month and beyond.

The work with families, carers, Carers Hub Lambeth and stakeholders to develop the strategy started last June with a Carers Strategy consultation meeting held at the Living Well Partnership in Effra Road Brixton.

Council and health officers and Carers Hub staff continued to work in the background with carers and other stakeholders on developing the strategy.

The next big meeting was in October last year at the Hideaway, Streatham where a large number of good ideas began to formulate.

This next stage on September 13th will be to start putting some of these thoughts and ideas into an action / implementation plan

There will be background material available on the day itself.

We look forward to seeing you there
