Views of unpaid carers sought for new strategy

Press release   •   Jun 23, 2016 10:42 BST

Unpaid carers in Moray are to be consulted as part of a new carers’ strategy.

Carry On Caring 2016-19 is the fourth strategy for unpaid carers in Moray and aims to build on the achievements of previous strategies.

It will also support the development of current support services and information for carers.

Many people have been involved in the first draft of the updated strategy and the thoughts and views of unpaid carers themselves are now being sought so that everyone can be confident in what it says and what it will do.

Carry On Caring can be found online at http://www.moray.gov.uk/downloads/file105643.pdf or a paper copy can be obtained by e-mailing involvement@moray.gov.uk

Comments can be made by completing an online questionnaire at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Carry-on-caring or by e-mailing involvement@moray.gov.uk

Alternatively, drop-in sessions are being held in the Gallery at Elgin library on Monday, June 27 from 2pm to 4pm and from 6pm to 8pm.

The deadline for submitting comments on the draft strategy is Friday, July 29.


Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.
