Carer Friendly City Survey 2019 – 2020
The Brighton and Hove Carers Strategy outlines the importance of working towards a Carer Friendly City. In order to get views on how the City was doing in this regard the Carers Centre for Brighton and Hove conducted a survey of carers attending an event for Carers Rights Day on 21 November 2019 and a number of group meetings held in December 2019. From the data received the City was generally considered to be “carer friendly” with great support from the City Council and local civil society organisations. You can download the report here.
