Support for carers of older people: some intranational and national comparisons: a review of the literature prepared for the Audit Commission

During 2003 the Audit Commission conducted a study of services and support for the carers of older people in England, with a particular emphasis on the implementation of the national Carer's Strategy. In order to place this study in context, a background study was commissioned into the approaches taken in a number of other countries to supporting carers. The Commission wished to examine whether the different countries within the UK had taken a different approach from England to supporting carers and whether there were any innovative developments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland from which England could learn. A number of other countries were also included in the review.
