Carers Health

Bolton's Carers Strategy 2013-2015 sets out priorities and practical ways to ensure the best possible outcomes for carers and those they care for through a programme of realistic actions to ensure that the vital role of carers is recognised and supported during the next three years. Bolton’s Carers Strategy follows on from and replaces the previous local strategy, ‘Supporting Carers in Bolton - Everyone’s Responsibility 2009-12’. The new Carers Strategy responds to national Government policy and strategy concerning carers and addresses the key priorities and outcomes for the next three years for individuals in Bolton who have caring responsibilities for persons over the age of 18; including support for families to avoid young people under this age carrying out inappropriate caring roles.
