Carers Partnership Board

Carers Partnership Board was set up in response to national strategies to ensure carers are able to access the support and services they need to remain in their caring role for as long as they wish.

The purpose of the board is to:

  • Monitor the Cornwall Carers Strategy 2014-2016
  • Discuss and address issues of common concern to carers in Cornwall
  • Raise awareness and improve understanding of the role carers play in supporting other people
  • Exchange ideas, strengthen skills and share examples of good practice in developing support and services so carers can remain in their caring role for longer

Membership of the Board is open to carers and those who have a lead role in developing support and services for carers in Cornwall. Key membership of the Board is:

  • Carers and carer representatives from the Carers Forums

  • NHS Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (including Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group, Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust and Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust)
  • Department for Work and Pensions
