Making Carers Count is a multi-partner programme aiming to identify and support carers who are under-represented amongst the community groups we currently reach and who have been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are creating new and wider collaborations, extending engagement methods, increasing learning, and enhancing how support is delivered to unpaid carers from these groups.
The programme is being delivered through three strands:
Local, meaningful and strategic projects to improve engagement with unpaid carers currently under-represented in receiving local carer support services.
Dedicated services for young carers and/or young adult carers where support is widely inconsistent or does not exist.
3. Increasing access to peer support
Improving and diversifying online support for unpaid carers.
