Surrey Carers' Strategy
Surrey County Council and the NHS in Surrey are updating their ‘Carers' Strategy’. They want your views on the services you receive as carers in Surrey. This includes your views on Action for Carers services, as they are looking for carers’ experiences to help them decide what services carers need and who should deliver them. It’s important that we get as many carers as possible to feed into this. They summarised the strategy and ask you three simple questions, on this web page:
Thank you for giving your views! Hopefully this will mean that Action for Carers is able to continue to support carers in Surrey for many years to come.
