One size does not fit all - this is why local authorities will be working closely with service users and carers to deliver personalised respite packages and also help those in the greatest need."

21 “The role and contribution of all carers is recognised, with their rights to equal treatment enshrined in policy and in the way services are delivered.” Care 21: The Future of Unpaid Care in Scotland

22 What do carers want… To be valued and respected as an individual To have their needs and expertise recognised A say in service provision To feel informed, prepared/confident, skilled/equipped To have support which responds to changing needs A positive relationship with practitioners A sense of shared responsibility with services

23 Talking Points There has been an increase in carer involvement in decisions about the care and support we provide We have effective ‘systems’ in place to review the level and quality of our carer involvement Carer defined outcomes are more likely to be identified than in the past Staff are clear about what constitutes a good outcome for carers Services and support are more person-centred than previously

25 “We expect services to make a positive difference to our lives. The outcomes we want include having power and control; being able to take risks and contribute to society. This means that there needs to be a shift in power away from people who commission and provide services to user and carers.”
