Young Carers Strategy Consultation

Closed 8 Aug 2022

Opened 9 Jun 2022


Surrey County Council and our NHS partners have drafted  the Young Carers Strategy for 2022 - 2024 over the past year.

The draft strategy is attached below.

We are looking for feedback on this draft strategy to ensure nothing is missed, that it accurately reflects the needs of Young Carers in Surrey and that the strategic aims will allow us to best meet those needs.

The consultation will run for 2 months.

All the responses will be collated and used to further develop the stratetgy. The strategy will then sit alongside the Adult Carers Strategy to provide an all age strategy for carers in Surrey.

We collect your data anonymously. If you wish to be involved in any further consultations looking at  how the strategic aims are being met and/or you request to receive the final strategy via email -there is an opportunity to provide contact information.

Easy read versions of the strategy and consultation are available below.

This data will be held in accordance with GDPR Children, Families and Lifelong Learning - Privacy Notice - Surrey County Council (


Why your views matter

Your views will help us shape the strategic response for young carers over the next 2years.


What happens next

The responses from this consultation will be used to further shape and create  the final Young Carers Strategy with an aim of having the final strategy signed off by the end of September
