Abstract

In May 2017 NHS England commissioned a project to support its Commitment to Carers programme. The focus of the work was to scope exemplar models of support for older carers, and for carers of people with dementia (of any age). The work took place between May 2017 and March 2018, and included a consultation workshop in February 2018. A full report of the findings is available, but this brief summary has been prepared primarily to give feedback to the people who contributed to the project and shared their experience with us. Our conclusions and recommendations should inform the further development of NHS England’s Commitment to Carers, but more widely they also point to gaps in which new approaches might be further developed and tested, building on the experiences and exemplars discussed.
