Carers Trust has been commissioned by the Local Government Association and Association of Directors of Adult Social Services as Partners in Care and Health to lead a national review and refresh of the “No wrong doors: working together to support young carers and their families” template Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
First introduced in 2009 and last refreshed in 2015, the MoU is designed to improve joint working between adult and social care services in respect of identification and support for young carers and their families.
As part of this work, Carers Trust has conducted a review of how “No Wrong Doors” is working in practice. The findings of this review can be found in the attached insights briefing. They include:
Carers Trust is leading a working group including a range of stakeholders to update the MoU and produce new practice guidance to support local councils and integrated care boards.
The refreshed MoU and guidance will be launched at a webinar on Thursday 29th February, 10am to 12pm. E-mail email@example.com to be informed when bookings open.
Carers Trust will also be delivering a workshop on this topic at the upcoming NCAS conference taking place in Bournemouth later this month.
