Your support provider should carry out a review of your support, family support and the support provided to the person you care for – sometimes called a ‘person-centred review’ on an annual basis and this should be led by you with the person with care needs.

They should be flexible and able to provide support that meets all of your needs. Remember, think care, think carer, think family.

What should I look for?

  • Find out how the support provided will be reviewed.
  • Ask how people who are important to you will be involved.
  • You should be able to easily contact your provider to make changes to your support at any time – not just at your annual review.

My daughter is becoming a teenager and I want her to experience the same things that other teenagers do, and so we have adapted her support plan to ensure she can have safe time out with friends at the youth club.
