Carers Trust Wales has produced a new guide for local authorities and local health boards on commissioning for carers.

The guide was launched at the Carers Trust Wales Conference on 24 February 2016. 

Commissioning support and services for carers – investing in carers – is a key way that local health boards and local authority commissioners can deliver against the outcomes that they are measured by, and in doing so make substantial savings across health and social care. This guide outlines how services for carers achieve these goals, and also provides examples of successful services commissioned for carers by both local health boards and local authorities.
