Integrated Interventions partnership sites

The partnership sites funded via the Integrated Interventions programme are:

  • Action for Children (Birmingham) and Birmingham City Council
  • Blackpool Carers Centre and Blackpool Council’s Children, Adults and Families Department *Learning, Schools and Communities Division
  • Barnardo’s (Liverpool) and Liverpool City Council
  • Kingston Carers Network and Prevention and Integrated Services and Learning and Children’s Services at Council for Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames
  • Cranstoun and Health Improvement and Development Service at Portsmouth City Council
  • Gloucestershire Young Carers and 2Gether NHS Foundation Trust
  • Off The Record Youth Counselling Service and Integrated Youth Support Service at Croydon Council
  • Community First and variety of local carers and military focused stakeholders including Ministry of Defence*

These eight funded partnership sites are all working locally towards achieving the following four aims that have been developed in consultation with the National Young Carers Coalition:

1. Families resilience is increased to prevent or reduce the amount of excessive or harmful caring undertaken by young carers under 18 in England.

2. The partnership ensures a ‘no wrong door’ approach to service provision and practice within the statutory and voluntary sector to prevent or reduce the amount of excessive or harmful caring undertaken by young carers under 18 in England

3. Sustainable whole family approaches are developed at all levels and by all partners to prevent or reduce excessive or harmful caring undertaken by young carers under 18 in England

4. Knowledge, skills and resources developed from partnership sites that demonstrate the prevention or reduction of excessive or harmful caring are made available.

Approximately 400 young carers and families will benefit from direct support through this programme. It is hoped that as a result of the partnership sites, referral pathways will become embedded both operationally and at a strategic level, meaning that young carers and their families will continue to benefit beyond the programme

Progress towards these aims will be monitored by the Grants Team at Carers Trust and by the external evaluation team, Peter Fletcher Associates. Further information on the outputs of the evaluation and replicable learning will be shared here in early 2013.
