Current Consultations

There are various ways to get involved with having your say.

If you would like to get involved with consultative groups or becoming a carer rep please get in touch with Kim Terry at [email protected].

If, however you would like to have your say, share your views or give your opinion in a different way there are always consultations available online (or by post) and if you would like to get involved in this way we will list any that we feel are relevant below. If you would like more information please get in touch with us.

Big Social Care Survey

The Care and Support Alliance (http://careandsupportalliance.com/) was set up in 2009 as an alliance of 80 charities (one of which is Age UK) campaigning for a properly funded care system. At the end of last week they launched their BIG SOCIAL CARE SURVEY to build evidence of the experiences of people who need social care and their families. As well as this, the evidence will be used to create media stories to ensure that social care is kept on the public agenda, and findings will be presented to ministers and civil servants as part of the influencing work on the social care green paper.

Could you help us?

Closing date for all responses is the 9th March 2018.

 

Your Life Your Choice  

Carers have been involved in providing feedback to Worcestershire County Council regarding the Your Life Your Choice Website and would value your comments.

Worcestershire County Council are pleased to inform you that the new and improved Your Life Your Choice website has now gone live. Colleagues across all directorates have been working together to improve the old site, previously just for adults, and add information for children, young people and families. The site aims to provide residents with information, advice and guidance on a range of topics and help residents to help themselves to prevent their problems from getting worse. There is also an e-marketplace of support services and products that can help and events, activities and support groups within each local area.

We hope this will be a site that all Worcestershire residents find useful to enable them to find the information and support that they need. If you have any feedback about the site or think there is anything missing, please provide your feedback using the app in the footer of the website.

The site is available at www.worcestershire.gov.uk/ylyc

If you would like to feedback directly to us or discuss anything listed here please contact Kim Terry at [email protected]
