Results updated 27 Sep 2023



This form introduces our proposals for a redesigned offer for Essex carers.  By carers we mean unpaid carers, people who look after family and friends.  The offer has been co-produced with carers, organisations who work with them, and a range of partners and front line workers.  We are now seeking final views on the offer, and this is your chance to contribute.

Why your views matter

Whether people identify as a ‘carer’ or simply see themselves as a parent, partner, son, daughter or friend, we want to ensure people can access information, advice, guidance and support when they need it and early into their caring role.

Essex County Council plans on making significant investment for carers support and this form introduces our proposals for a co-produced redesigned offer for Essex carers.  We are now seeking concluding views on the model from you.
