North East ADASS, made up of the 12 directors of Adult Social Care in the region, has launched a survey to build a better picture of carers' needs and experiences, the support available to them and the services they'd like to see in future.
If you’re one of the thousands of people across the North East who helps look after relatives, friends and neighbours in their own homes, they’d like to hear from you.
- You might help an elderly relative with their shopping, meals or keeping their home spick and span – or it might be even more personal care, like dressing, bathing or with their medicines.
- You might help an adult with learning disabilities in living a fulfilling and independent life out in the community.
- Or you might be providing support for a friend or neighbour who is facing difficulties with addiction.
Whatever the kind of care you provide, and whoever it is for, this survey will help them understand the issues and challenges you face, so that they can support you better.
Complete the survey before May 14th online through Survey Monkey.
