Weathering the perfect storm: facing the challenge of maintaining gains for carers against a background of shrinking resources in one area of England

These are not easy times for carers in England. While English legislation and government policy are more carer-friendly than ever before, resources are under increasing pressure from both the exploding ‘demographic time-bomb’ and ‘austerity’. This has followed the global financial crash of 2008, subjecting the whole of the public sector to significant cuts. [...] If access to formal care has proportionately reduced, we must drive additional value from a more integrated voluntary and statutory sector ‘system’. Networking, via HertsHelp, Carers in Hertfordshire and Community Navigators, can prevent confusion and duplication (for carers and professionals).
