We know that there are many thousands of people in Wales who are caring for disabled or older relatives, friends or neighbours.  The Carers Strategy for Wales is our national plan for supporting these unpaid carers.  It sets out what we are doing to help the NHS, local councils, charities and businesses to provide better services and support to carers of all ages.  

The Carers Strategy was last updated over five years ago, and we want to make sure it is still making a difference to carers’ lives.  This draft of a refreshed Strategy sets out the actions we intend to take to support carers over the next three years.  

If you are a carer, or a person who is cared for, we are keen to hear your views.  

We will use your responses to draw up the final Strategy which will be published in April 2013.  

This consultation applies to Wales only.
