This document is designed to be used by Regional Partnership Boards, Local authorities, Local Health Boards and third sector organisations in Wales to support the identification and commissioning of good services for unpaid carers.
This resource is primarily aimed to be a guide for local government. The Children and Families Act 2014 places a duty on local authorities to take ‘reasonable steps’ to identify young carers in their area who have support needs. This resource sets out these duties and shows how local government can work with education, health and social care partners to take the steps necessary to increase identification of young carers.

A presentation from the Triangle of Care Celebration Event which took place on 9 October 2019. The Triangle of Care describes a therapeutic relationship between the patient, staff member and carer that promotes safety, supports communication and sustains wellbeing.
Triangle of Care is a model which asserts that care is best delivered when a child/young person receiving input from child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), professionals and carers share their expertise and experiences to ensure the best outcome for all.
Triangle of Care principles translate across many different specialisms and fields in mental health. They are based upon the core principle that carers, people who use services and professionals should work in equal partnership to promote safety, support recovery and sustain wellbeing.
