Consultation on Clackmannanshire and Stirling Carers Strategy

As part of the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016, Clackmannanshire and Stirling Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) are required to produce a local Carers Strategy which outlines the vision and priorities for unpaid carers.
 
A consultation took place when the Strategy was initially drafted last year. The Strategy is now in its draft stage, and Clackmannanshire and Stirling (HSCP) are looking to consult on it further before finalising and publishing the Strategy at the end of March.
 
This consultation focuses on the specific priorities contained within the Strategy, and asks you to give your thoughts and opinions on them, as well as provide comments on anything else that you feel is appropriate.  You can read the draft Carers Strategy here. Clackmannanshire and Stirling HSCP would be grateful if you are able to spend a short time to complete the survey, which can be accessed by clicking here.
