As a Trust, we recognise that there is more we can do to engage a more diverse community of carers and families. In September 2021, we received a grant fund to develop our Mind the Gap project which is exploring, initially, how we engage with five communities of carers:

  1. Older carers in rural communities
  2. Young Carers
  3. Carers from Minority Ethnic Backgrounds
  4. Travelling/Gypsy carers
  5. Military Families and carers

By March 2022, we will have five bespoke carer engagement strategies and will look to develop progress with these communities further, and extend our work to other diverse communities of carers too
