In North Lincolnshire it is estimated that 18,161 people are carers who look after an ill, frail or disabled family member or friend in their day-to-day life.
Research suggests that more than 5,500 people locally will become a carer each year. Many are not aware of the help and support available to them.
The All Age Carers Commissioning Strategy outlines the commissioning intentions for carers across North Lincolnshire to ensure that by understanding the needs of our carers, we can design, shape and transform services to meet these needs.
The strategy was created jointly with North Lincolnshire Council and North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (the CCG).
