Carers' breaks and respite services: rapid review summary

Part of Carers' breaks: guidance for commissioners and providers

Drawing on a focused literature review combined with selected Carers UK Breaks Survey data, this summary report outlines key themes and issues relating to the provision of carers breaks and respite in England since the introduction of the Care Act 2014. Key messages from the research include: that the evidence base on the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of specific interventions for carers is weak; there is a tension between cost-effectiveness and what is valued by carers; and that carers cite a lack of flexibility, choice and accessibility as key concerns along with issues of cost and concerns around quality of current provision. The findings will be used to inform the development of guidance for commissioners and providers and the dissemination of advice and information tool for carers being produced by SCIE and Carers UK respectively.

Young carer transition in practice under the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

This resource explores how the provisions in the Care Act around transition can be put into practice for young carers moving from children’s to adult services to ensure that they are appropriately supported and encouraged to fulfil their education and employment potential. One young carer’s journey through transition (Emma’s story) will provide an example of how several services worked together to support her into adulthood. The resource covers: transition in the Care Act 2014 and the Children and Families Act 2014; identifying support needs of young carers; timing of a transition assessment; transition assessments under the Care Act 2014; approaches to assessments; information and advice; transition planning; transition of young carers; practice examples, describing young carers’ journeys through transition; and a process map with suggestions on how to put the stages into action.
