Leeds has a bold ambition to be the best city for health and wellbeing in the UK. Unpaid carers are crucial both to our communities and to the sustainability of health and social care in Leeds. If we are to be the best city for health and well-being, we need to be the best city for carers!

That means being the best at identifying carers, the best at recognising and valuing the contribution that carers make, the best at promoting carers own health and well-being and the best at supporting working carers.

The co-chairs of the Leeds Carers Partnership Group positively support the Leeds Commitment to Carers and recognise that we all have our part to play. By taking action to demonstrate your own commitment you are taking a positive step in making Leeds the best city for carers.

The Leeds Carers Partnership has created a strategy for supporting carers in Leeds called ‘The Leeds Commitment to Carers’. To find out ore please follow this link.
