Carers from Ethnic minorities may have different needs, issues and requirements from other populations, they are often overlooked in research and often do not access statutory services until they hit crisis point.
As part of Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnerships commitment to carers programme The Wraparound Partnership have been awarded funding from NHS England Carers Programme, to listen to and learn from, the experiences of carers (including parent/carers) from Ethnic Minority communities. The outcomes of the conversation will shape the future direction of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Carers Programme.
The more experiences and voices shared the better the future programme will deliver for this group. There is an online survey open to be shared with relevant networks, groups and individuals.
The Wraparound Partnership are looking to do phone call or zoom / FaceTime interviews with carers from BME and/or Asian Communities, if you, or someone you know would be interested in this, email: [email protected]
