Strategy set for Fife carers

The Fife Carers Strategy will be launched in Glenrothes.

Beginning on 7 February at Fife House, the Fife Carers Strategy 2012/15 was developed by a Strategy Group of carers working together with Fife Council, NHS Fife and Voluntary Sector agencies. This new strategy takes on-board recent changes in how care is received, with a greater demand for unpaid care predicted.

Alasdair MacLeod, Chair of the Carers Strategy Group said: “This strategy looks at the outcomes we want to achieve, how we intend to achieve them, the time-scales in which the work will be done and the resources available. A large number of people, both young and old, support or care for family members or friends in Fife.”
