New Deal for Carers: revision of the Prime Minister's 1999 Strategy on Carers: Health and Social Care Taskforce Report

The Health & Social Care (H&SC) Task Force, the membership of which is set out in annex B, was one of four such task forces established to develop proposals for measures to be included in the new Carers’ Strategy1 . This report comprises proposals developed by the group which were put to the Interdepartmental Group chaired by David Behan, Director-General Social Care, Local Government and Care Partnerships, Department of Health, which oversaw the development of the strategy as a whole. 

The major themes identified by the taskforce as underpinning their work are: − Support for carers to lead a life outside caring − Information − Advocacy − Access to services − Recognition − Diversity − Young Carer issues
