Additional Information

e are Clare Forsythe and Patricia McCrink Carer Coordinators for the Southern Health and Social Care Trust. Our role is to support the Trust in developing and implementing its Carer Strategy. We support the role of Carers in the Southern area by actively identifying your needs and developing services and actions to address these with the support of the Trust Directorates and staff teams. We have lead role in supporting the work streams of the Trust Carer’s Reference group who discuss how they will fulfil the aims of the Caring for Carer’s Strategy. An action plan is put in place on an annual basis to address priority areas as highlighted in the strategy to support Carers. We liaise closely with Carer’s groups and Carer’s organisations and other Voluntary organisations who provide support to Carers and together we work in partnership to ensure that all Carers are provided with the support and care that they need to remain in the caring role. There are opportunities for you to have your say and become a voice for change for Carers in the Southern Area. Become involved, and be part of the shaping of services, ensuring that they are delivered in a manner which best supports Carers. Without you making your voice heard, professionals have no way of knowing what needs to change, or what is being done well.
