This is Coventry’s third multi-agency Carers' Strategy and has been developed based on what carers tell us they need both nationally and locally.
It applies to carers of all ages and builds on the significant progress and achievements from previous strategies. The strategy is based on the four priority areas of the current National Carers' Strategy: “Recognised, Valued and Supported” and identifies 12 key improvement areas to support these priorities.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic the draft version of the latest strategy is currently on hold. This will be reviewed and consideration given to the impact and experience that COVID-19 has had on our carers in the city.
