Consultation on respite care guidance

This draft guidance will update and replace guidance issued in 1996. The main purpose of the consultation is to help local service planners improve respite provision in line with the overall principles of enabling self care and working with carers as partners in care by improving respite planning, shifting the balance towards preventative support, and personalising support to improve outcomes both for carers and those with care needs. This guidance provides advice to adult Community Care Partnerships and to agencies engaged in children’s services on the planning and delivery of respite care.
