Carers Strategy Network

What is the Carers Strategy Network?

The Carers Network meets quarterly; the network is made up of representatives from Cwm Taf University Health Board, voluntary sector, Merthyr Tydfil Council and carers.

The Network identifies the issues that carers have in their role and address them in the strategy.  It puts the issues into actions plans which all partners work on and try to deliver effective services.

The aim of the Strategy is:

  • to deliver better services for carers
  • to ensure that carers of all ages are aware of their rights
  • to ensure that carers are at the top of the main agendas
  • to keep raising the profile of the work that carers are doing

Carers Strategy 2016 - 2019

The Strategy commenced in August 2016
