Launch of Knowsley Carers Strategy

by Lisa Bennett

Knowsley’s All Age Carers Strategy 2020-2025 will be launched next week with a series of online events.

Building on the success of Knowsley’s earlier Carers Strategy for 2017-2019, this latest strategy sets out how partners across Knowsley will work together to ensure that carers needs are supported now and in the future, so that they can live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.

The vision set out within the new Carers Strategy is based on insight from carers in Knowsley and focuses on ensuring they are recognised and valued and that they receive supportive services, enabling them to have a quality of life similar to those without caring responsibilities.

Cllr Sean Donnelly, Knowsley’s Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care said:

“Carers are a critical part of the care system in Knowsley and their input into this strategy has been crucial to help identify the priorities for the next five years. In Knowsley we are committed to helping to make a significant difference to the lives of carers and this strategy will help us to achieve that.”
