Milton Keynes City Council completed online and in person events for carers to share their views on how Carers are supported in October and November 2022.
Over 40 carers attended the different events sharing their views on our Carer’s assessment and Carer's offers. Thank you to everyone who attended and shared their feedback.
There was general agreement the Carers’ assessment should be focused on a Carer’s conversation and in addition, carers should be offered a separate assessment from the assessment of the Cared for person.
This approach has been introduced into our working practice and all carers are now offered the option of a separate assessment. We have also launched a new online support service called Mobilise. You can find more information about this and some of the other improvements we have introduced following the feedback we received.
