Why are we doing this?

Hello.

Would you like to be involved in decisions the Council makes which affect you? Are you aware of existing opportunities to get involved?

We (the council) are running a project until 31st March 2022 called 'people are involved in shaping and improving services' and from this project the we are hoping to develop and formalise an approach to involvement and engagement which will allow you to:

  • Understand how, when and why the council makes different decisions
  • Know what opportunities there are for you to get involved, and to what extent
  • Feel supported to participate in the council's decision-making processes in a way that is meaningful and appropriate for you

 

What do we want to know?

To support the aims of this project, we will be carrying out research in phases over the next three years.

Year 1 (ending 31 March 2020)

We will be conducting a survey that will help us to understand how you feel about how the council currently manages involvement or consultation opportunities, how you feel about getting involved in the council's decision-making, and what changes you might like to see in the future. From this, we will develop a recommendations report and an action plan.

Year 2 (finishing 31 March 2022)

We will work through the recommendations and actions we have developed in Year 1, and we will conduct another survey so you can tell us if you think we're on track. From this, we will assess our recommendations and action plan and amend them if necessary.

Year 3 (finishing 31 March 2022)

We will continue to work on our recommendations and actions from Years 1 and 2, and we will conduct a final survey so you can help us to continue to monitor our progress. From this, we will aim to develop sustainable long-term guidance and support for staff and for communities to ensure that  opportunities for involvement will be managed in a way which is meaningful and beneficial to you

_______________________________________________________________

Update: February/March 2020

You can help us with the first phase by taking the Year 1 survey which will be linked below until the closing deadline of Friday 20th March. After this, please keep an eye out for updates as we will be reporting back at the end of April 2020.

You can also register for Y Panel (our online citizen panel) if you would like to receive updates on this project.

View more details for consultation Supporting Adult Carers in Denbighshire Supporting Adult Carers in Denbighshire Community Support Services 01 Apr 2018 31 Mar 2022
Why are we doing this?

Can you help us improve support for Carers in Denbighshire? Are you, or have you been, a Carer looking for help and information? Have you tried to juggle paid work with caring duties in your free time?

If you can answer "Yes" to any of the above, please read on, as we would value your input into this work.

 

One of Denbighshire County Council's priorities in our Corporate Plan 2017-2022 is to work with people and communities to build independence and resilience.

People who take on a caring role for their family and friends play a very important part in helping those individuals to remain in their own homes for longer. 

Our Corporate Project - Supporting Carers in Denbighshire - has the over-arching objective to ensure all Carers in Denbighshire are well supported.

 

Please note: This project is about supporting people who are unpaid Carers for family and/or friends, and not about people who are employed in a caring role, for example with a domiciliary care provider.

 

Who is a Carer?

If you provide regular unpaid help and support for a relative, partner or friend who is frail, or disabled, has physical or mental health issues, or substance misuse problems, then you are a Carer. The Social Services and Well-Being Act (Wales) 2014 defines a Carer as someone who provides or intends to provide care for an adult or disabled child.

 

The project has the following objectives relating to Adult Carers:

  • Denbighshire County Council and our communities recognise the importance and benefit of supporting Carers.
  • Our citizens who carry out caring roles have access to high quality information, advice and assistance to promote their own personal wellbeing outcomes.
  • We have robust processes and clear pathways for identification of Carers in need of support.
  • Community Support Service effectively responds to the support needs of Carers requiring statutory assistance.
  • A range of preventative services for Carers is available from the third sector.
  • Carers employed by Denbighshire County Council are supported to manage their caring role alongside their work commitments.
  • All Carers are supported to attain their educational goals, and to continue their educational development if they wish.
  • All Carers and the individuals they care for have access to suitable and inclusive leisure opportunities.
  • Carers are engaged actively in the planning and shaping of services.

 

Desired Project Outcomes:

  • Carers will be more resilient and independent.
  • Carers will be well informed and will feel supported within their communities.
  • Carers will be able to live a fulfilled life.
  • Carers will be able to care for longer, if that is their choice.
  • Citizens of Denbighshire and those working within Denbighshire will have a greater understanding of the importance of supporting Carers. 

 

 

What do we want to know?

If you are, or have been a Carer for a member of your family or a friend, please take some time to complete our survey. It should not take too long, but you can do part and come back and complete it later if you wish. Just save the survey before you leave the page.

We are keen to find out from you what issues you have experienced when accessing information, advice and assistance to help you in your caring duties. We want to be able to improve the support we offer to Carers in Denbighshire and we need your help to do that.
