Carers Network strategy 2015-18 published

Making our charity and life for carers even better

Carers Network’s new three year strategy launches today at Carers Action Day.

The strategy sets out the charity’s plans up to 2018 and our vision: every unpaid carer in the areas in which we operate is recognised and leads a healthy fulfilling life with control over their caring role.

Thank you to all the carers and staff who helped us to shape our strategy and we look forward to working with you all to achieve our vision over the next three years.

Take a look at our strategy CNStrategy2015_Final

Our work in 2013-14

Last year we supported more carers than ever before, working now across both Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster.

  • Over the year we completed 849 carer assessments – the gateway support for carers
  • We identified 645 carers who were new to services
