The Social Care Institute for Excellence and Carers UK are working together to develop good practice guidance on carers’ respite and breaks.

The organisations are seeking good practice examples from commissioners and care providers to support its research ahead of the publication in April.

Their work has been commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care as part of the Carers Action Plan 2018-2020.

Examples should refer to adults who care for adults or young people transitioning from children’s to adults’ services in England.

SCIE and Carers UK are also interested in examples that support young carers as they turn 18 and become adult carers.

Care providers and commissioners should complete this survey by Tuesday, January 29 to take part.
