Putting carers first

This call for evidence will help us do more

It’s one of the privileges of social work that we are able to offer support and guidance during the very personal – and often hidden – struggles of individuals and their families.

Caring for and protecting those closest to you can be difficult and is often the case that carers do not put themselves first. As a result, their own health and wellbeing can suffer, often affecting those they are caring for. In airline safety demonstrations, there’s a reason why the air crew advise passengers to attach their own oxygen masks before helping others!

The Department of Health recently launched a call for evidence: How can we improve support for carers? In association with leading sector partners including Carers Trust and Carers UK, this is about finding new and better ways to support carers and keep them – and the ones they are caring for – healthy and happy.
