Throughout 2016 Devon County Council and the NHS talked extensively with carers about how they can best support them in their caring roles. These conversations have been used to inform planning for a new contract for carers’ services which will be tendered, to go live from April 2018.
Devon County Council commissioned Healthwatch Devon to consult on the draft specification for adult carers, and a separate specification for young carers.
A summary of both specifications, as well as full copies of the draft specification were available on our website and promoted through our communication channels during the consultation period.
