Our pledges to carers

In Southwark, over 21,000 people have caring responsibilities, including some 2300 young people, looking after family or friends with a disability or long term health condition.

While carers can get real satisfaction from their role, it can also have a significant impact on the health, wellbeing and the independence of the carers themselves.

Southwark Council and NHS Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) want to make sure that we are providing carers with the best possible support, not only in their caring responsibilities but also to support carers themselves to stay healthy and feel independent and fulfilled.

Over the last few months, we have been working with carers and partners to see how we can support our carers better. We drafted a three year plan, which sets out how we can develop the range and quality of our services and make sure that all Southwark's carers are getting the support they need, and asked you to share your views.

We'd like to give huge thanks to everyone who took the time to take part. Thanks to your input, we can now make these pledges to the carers of Southwark.
