Carers' strategy

Caring for Carers sets out North Yorkshire’s over-arching strategy for promoting carers' health and wellbeing. It has been produced by the Health and Wellbeing Board for North Yorkshire, working on behalf of local residents. It is an all-ages strategy, aimed at supporting carers to both continue caring and to have a life of their own.

The strategy reflects what carers have told us in North Yorkshire, along with other local and national evidence about the effects of being a carer. The strategy sets out the ways in which carers in North Yorkshire will be supported and how we can protect the health and wellbeing needs of carers alongside the needs of the people they care for.
