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.
