Have you been chosen to take part in the latest adult carers survey?

16 October 2018

Adult carers across Stockton-on-Tees are being encouraged to share their views on the quality of services on offer.

A sample of carers aged 18 or over, caring for a person aged 18 or over, have been chosen at random to receive the Survey of Adult Carers.

It welcomes views on the needs of carers, the impact caring has on their quality of life and the support from social care services.

There are also questions on the quality of information and advice available, as well as the type of care they are providing.

Councillor Jim Beall, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health, said: "The findings of the Survey of Adult Carers will be used to inform future policy to benefit all carers living in the Borough.

"It is an important way to learn how we can improve the services and support that carers get, so I would encourage everybody who has received the survey to complete it."

The national survey is carried out every two years by councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs).

The survey has been sent out by post to all chosen carers, along with a reply paid envelope.

The initial deadline for responses is this Friday (October 19), however reminders will be sent out after this date as the return window closes on November 30.
