All Age Integrated Carers Strategy consultation

Caring for our carers - the next 5 years

We want your feedback on our draft 'All Age Integrated Carers Strategy 2024 to 2029'. This draft has been co-produced with carers from Bracknell Forest.

The strategy focuses on carers of all ages living in the borough. It:

  • outlines our vision and priorities for them over the next 5 years
  • provides an overview of what is currently available to support our carers
  • includes a high-level assessment of carers' needs and a planned approach to addressing these needs

The strategy will help us achieve our main goals as set out in the Council Plan and Bracknell Forest Health and Care Plan 2022 to 2025.

Our vision

Our vision is for all carers living in Bracknell Forest to be recognised and valued in their community. We want them to feel empowered in achieving their aspirations and supported in their caring role.

We have set out 5 priorities to help us to do this:

  • Recognising and supporting carers in the wider community
  • Services and support that work for carers
  • Employment and financial wellbeing
  • Supporting young carers
  • Young adult carers

Method of data collection

Our data has been collected from:

  • carers
  • voluntary and community sector organisations
  • health and social care professionals
  • primary care network leads
  • schools

We gathered input from these groups through an online survey, focus groups, and other engagement activities. We asked for their opinions on the main issues for carers and what actions should be prioritised.
