Lambeth's Carers Strategy...
Lambeth Carers Strategy
Carers’ Hub Lambeth see the Carers Strategy as a vital opportunity to raise awareness of carers and improve carer support in our borough.
We’re working with the Carers Collaborative Strategy Group to help make the carers strategy a reality.
"Our vision is for families and carers in Lambeth to feel recognised, valued and included as equal partners in the support and care for the person they care for. Equally we want families and carers to have full, enjoyable and confident lives in their own right alongside their caring role."
The Lambeth carers strategy seeks to improve the quality of life of unpaid carers in our borough. Working towards ensuring all carers are:
Able to have a life of one's own alongside caring
Protected from financial hardship caused by their caring role
Supported to stay mentally and physically well
Respected as care and support partners at the heart of decision making
(Young carers) able to enjoy a thriving childhood and are protected from inappropriate caring roles.
