Consultations and campaign opportunities with Action for Carers.

Consultations and campaigns

Your experiences as a carer – good and bad – are hugely important. Your views are extremely valuable to help make changes for the better for all carers, both in Surrey and nationally.

There’s several ways you can share your experiences and express your views – and make a  difference.

‘Giving Carers a Voice’ programme

At Action for Carers we run our own programme of consultations, including a ‘Carers’ Parliament’, finding out from carers their views and opinions on our services and issues facing carers generally.

We have consultation events taking place all the time, Surrey-wide, and would love to hear from you. Most take place as meetings, but you are also very welcome to submit your views by email to maria.young@actionforcarers.org.uk or letter.

(We also have a Compliments and Complaints process.)

External consultations

There are frequent consultations taking place in Surrey – with Surrey County Council, the NHS and other charities and groups setting up opportunities to hear about your experiences and get your views on services, including potential developments.

Opportunities range from being part of focus groups, to one-off sessions, and questionnaire-style feedback. There are usually many ways to give your views.
