‘Carers at the Heart of Worcestershire’s Families and Communities’ is the All Age Carers Strategy for Worcestershire, which needs to be updated and we need your help to do this.  It is vital that both the strategy and action plan (to implement the strategy) accurately reflects the views of carers and what would best support you in your caring role over the coming years.

As part of this work, we want to gain an understanding of the views of carers who provide support to someone who has autism and what would best support you in your caring role over the coming years.  

The outcomes below were co-produced with carers when the last survey was produced and are statements that carers in Worcestershire should be able to achieve (even if you don’t feel that way now and need support to achieve them).

  • I feel recognised and valued – for example, I want to feel recognised and respected in my role as a carer; I am able to care safely; the caring I do is appropriate to my age and capabilities; I understand how to access support etc.   
  • I have a I have a life of my own - I am able to balance my caring role and my personal life; I know how to maximise my income and meet my basic needs and not be in financial hardship due to my caring role; I am able to remain in or return to employment if I wish to.   
  • I feel physically and mentally well - I can maintain my physical health and wellbeing; I am able to manage my stress; I am able to maintain relationships that are important to me etc.   

This session, run by Worcestershire County Council, would like to find out whether these outcomes are still appropriate in the ‘post Covid’ world. If you are a carer of someone with autism, come along and give your views and ideas on the outcomes, current service and any gaps in what’s currently available.
