Here at Mobilise, we don't believe it's good enough to think that something is a good idea - we want to know that it is. We regularly work with leading academics and research agencies to understand what's important and what works.

carers strategies

We’ve analysed 149 carers strategies published by local authorities in England, looking for key trends, priorities and varying approaches.

 

Our analysis has revealed only 41% of carers strategies make explicit reference to carer voice, yet 77% say valuing or involving carers is a priority. See what else has been uncovered by downloading the one-pager summarising our findings.

Experience over the COVID-19 pandemic has shown that well-designed online services can open up support to new groups of carers, helping them to thrive in their caring role.

 

This report summarises relevant existing evidence about providing online support for carers - both from the social care sector and from a wider ‘digital transformation’ background - and introduces new evidence from the experience of carers leads and support providers through the pandemic.

Reaching out

There is an urgent need for more accessible mental health support for carers across the UK.
