The Department of Health are leading on developing a new cross-government Carers Strategy which will set out what more can be done to improve support for carers. It’s important that the Strategy works for all carers. To help the Department of Health (DH) develop the strategy, if you identify as LGBT and also as a carer, then DH would like to hear from you about what support works well for you and what could work better. If you support carers and have worked specifically to support LGBT carers, for example through a dedicated LGBT carers group or programme, please also get in touch.
