Last year Devon County Council and the NHS talked extensively with carers about how we 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 soon to go live from April 2018. This will replace the contract currently provided by Devon Carers.
We know that carers want to live their lives independently of health and social care services but that there are times when they need excellent information, advice and support.
We are now publishing our draft contract specification so that you can have a say on our proposals.
