Putting people first without putting carers second

Personalisation is now the driving agenda for adult social care and Putting People First recognises that increasing numbers of ordinary people will be called upon to contribute to care delivered in people’s own homes. Of the UK's six million carers, 1.3 million are already caring, unpaid, for over 50 hours a week. Carers have always wanted better outcomes for the people they care for. However, with many carers suffering poverty, ill health and isolation due to unsustainably heavy caring roles, they also want and deserve better outcomes for themselves. This Report has been produced by The Princess Royal Trust for Carers and Crossroads Caring for Carers, with support from the Local Government Association, NHS Confederation, The Improvement and Development Agency and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS). It examines the challenges local councils and health trusts face in making personalisation a reality for carers alongside those they care for. It also highlights a range of solutions that ar e already in place to meet those challenges, often involving inspirational partnerships between Third Sector carers’ services and innovative commissioners within councils and the NHS
