Carers Consultation 2018

Carers Consultation 2018

We need your input, thoughts and ideas!


'A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support' Source: Carers Trust

Carers freely give their time and energy to support friends or family members. Caring for others should not be to the detriment of the carer’s own health and wellbeing and carers can receive support in a number of ways – such as Bury Council, the NHS, & the Voluntary, Community & Faith Alliance.

Bury Council and Bury CCG recently consulted with carers and people who support carers to seek their views on the services they have used, their needs, and what provision for carers they would like to see in Bury.

A range of mechanisms was used to allow people a choice of how they could take part; either in written format, electronically using the One Community platform or face-to-face focus groups.

Next Steps:

We are now running a number of feedback workshops to update on the findings and what happens next.

For carers:

  • Monday 4th March, 1-3pm to be held in the Lancaster Room, Bury Town Hall
  • Monday 4th March, 6-8pm to be held in the Peel Room, Bury Town Hall
  • Wednesday 6th March, 10am – 12 Noon to be held in the Peel Room, Bury Town Hall

For people who support carers:

  • Wednesday 6th March, 1-3pm to be held in the Peel Room, Bury Town Hall

If you would like to attend one of the workshops, would you please email engagement@bury.gov.uk or telephone 0161 253 7926 confirming:

  • Your name
  • Organisation (if applicable)
  • The session you wish to attend

There is limited availability and reservations will be made on a first-come, first served basis.

Once all the feedback sessions have taken place, we will publish the Carers Consultation findings on The Bury Directory and One Community Bury

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the Bury Carers Consultation.
