The strategy identifies the actions that the Government will take over the next four years to support its priorities to ensure the best possible outcomes for carers and those they support, including:

  • supporting those with caring responsibilities to identify themselves as carers at an early stage, recognising the value of their contribution and involving them from the outset both in designing local care provision and in planning individual care packages
  • enabling those with caring responsibilities to fulfil their educational and employment potential
  • personalised support both for carers and those they support, enabling them to have a family and community life
  • supporting carers to remain mentally and physically well
