Find out about the consultations on issues affecting carers that are running in Surrey and nationally. Some we run, however many are from external organisations but we think they're relevant to you!

Consultations – your chance to have your say!

Consultations are your opportunity to have a voice on local and national issues affecting carers.  If consultations are currently taking place you can follow the links to take part, many of these are run by other organisations but we think they are relevant to Surrey’s carers. (And you can find all of Surrey County Council’s current consultations, on ALL topics, here.)

Your view really does matter and together we can plan what support looks like for carers now and in the future.

Most importantly at the moment, we need YOUR feedback on caring in Surrey to help shape the Surrey Carers Strategy, please take time to visit the consultation here.
