Halton Borough Council is distributing its Adult Carers’ Survey until the end of November and is encouraging recipients to complete it.
It is being sent to a sample of carers who have been assessed or reviewed, jointly or separately, in the past 12 months.
The survey’s aim is to find out more about carers’ views and experiences – for example, whether services that they receive are helping them in their caring role; their lives outside of caring; and also their perception of the services they receive from the Council.
The survey has been developed by the Department of Health and all councils with adult social care responsibilities in England have been asked to run the survey every two years. The results will be used nationally by the Department of Health and locally by Halton Borough Council to measure the following:
- Carers’ reported quality of life
- Carers’ overall satisfaction with social services
- The proportion of carers who report they have been included or consulted in discussions about the person for whom they care
- The proportion of carers who find it easy to find information about services.
