Short Breaks Services Statement for Local Carers and Supported People

Wednesday 02nd January 2019

Angus Health & Social Care Partnership and Angus Council are required by the Carers' Act to publish a Short Breaks Services Statement for local carers and supported people. It should help them to understand their rights and options if they are considering a short break.  

Please take the time to look at these draft documents and let us know what you think of them. One is the “Statement” itself (PDF, 286KB), and the accompanying Supporting Notes (PDF, 490KB) gives people more information if they feel they need it. Your feedback will help us finalise the statement before we publish it, so please tell us:

  • Do you think the statement will meet carers’ needs?  
  • Is there anything missing?  
  • Are any changes needed?  

Please direct any feedback to: Janet Owers, Planning Officer on 01307 476493, at owersj@angus.gcsx.gov.uk or by post at Angus Health & Social Care Partnership, Angus House, Orchardbank Business Park, Forfar, DD8 1AN.                   

Thank you. The closing date for feedback is Sunday 20 January 2019.
