All Age Carers

Telford and Wrekin's population has grown significantly over the past decade, with increasing diversity and an ageing demographic. 

Carers continue to play a crucial role in the social care system by providing essential support to their loved ones. It's essential that we continue to collaborate with partners and local organisations to ensure effective support for carers.

As such Telford and Wrekin Council has identified a strategy that identifies areas important to carers ensuring resources are used where carers of all ages need them the most.

A draft All Age Carers Strategy has been developed, following a pre-consultation engagement with carers, professionals, organisations and groups across the borough.
