Wiltshire’s five year joint Strategy for Carers launched early in 2018 as a result of extensive consultation with Wiltshire’s carers and health, social care and voluntary sector partners, and it reflects what carers said about themselves, their needs and their views on existing services. The Strategy is intended to drive forward Wiltshire’s commitment to carers in Wiltshire over the next 5 years, in recognising the invaluable contribution made by carers, and the support that carers need and deserve.

The joint Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire CCG Strategy was co-produced with partners including the Alzheimer's Society, Alzheimer's Support, Healthwatch Wiltshire, Wiltshire Parent Carer Council, Spurgeons Young Carers, Wiltshire Citizen Advice and Wiltshire Centre for Independent Living, Wiltshire People 1st and Wiltshire carers. The Strategy aims to ensure that: ‘Carers are identified and accepted as expert partners in care; are well informed; and maintain a good quality of life and healthy lifestyle outside of their caring responsibility.'
