Carers Trust has launched the No Longer Able to Care report and resources. Commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care the report looks at the importance of supporting carers to plan for a future when they are less able or unable to care. Carers Trust worked with 8 partners in the Health and Wellbeing Alliance to create the report which takes an in-depth look at what support is currently available and the support carers need. It also explores the needs of carers from communities who face additional barriers to accessing services – Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, Gypsy and Traveller communities and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities.
They also produced resources for commissioners, providers, and frontline staff which will help them ensure their services enable carers to plan for the future and consider the needs of carers from communities who face additional barriers.
