Caring Together in Belfast 2023 onwards

Belfast Trust has developed ‘Caring Together in Belfast 2023 Onwards’ which sets out our 5 year plan to support unpaid and family carers.  Carers have been at the centre of this work and working through the ‘Carer Network’, four priority areas for action have been developed.

  1. Reach all Carers – Raise awareness and identify carers within families and communities
  2. Navigate Carer Support – Identify the support that carers require at different stages
  3. Support Carer Health and Wellbeing – Supporting carers to protect their health and wellbeing
  4. Connect with and Involve Carers – Connect with and empower carers to get involved

Listen to Jackie, one of the carers from the Carer Network and Claire Fordyce, Carer Support Service’s Manager at the launch of ‘Caring Together in Belfast 2023 Onwards’ for consultation on why this work is so important to you as a carer and to encourage you to input into the consultation.

We are now seeking views on our draft Caring Together in Belfast 2023 Onwards and welcome your feedback of our proposed actions or how they could be improved. We are keen to hear from anyone – carers, service users, staff and trade unions and will value input from those who have lived experience.

We are consulting on the draft strategy until Friday 8 September 2023.
