Help Shape Carers’ Services in Hackney



STUDIO UPSTAIRS is a charity that offers provide positive, life-changing interventions for people with mental or emotional difficulties within an artistic therapeutic community

Hackney Council is looking to refresh and improve the offer for unpaid adult carers in Hackney. We are interested in hearing about your experiences working with unpaid adult carers and finding out more about what you think an excellent service for adult carers in Hackney would look like. This is your chance to tell us what is working well, what the barriers are and what needs to be improved.

You can provide your views by using the online questionnaire found on the Council's website The deadline for completing this questionnaire is 15th of October 2018. Your feedback will help to shape and improve carers' services locally to meet the needs of adult carers so please do take the opportunity to complete if you can. If you wish to have a 1:1 discussion to provide extra feedback then further details can be found on the questionnaire.


Hackney Council is also asking carers for their feedback on services so if we would appreciate if you could share the following communication with any carers about the upcoming consultation:

  • ·  The local carer's redesign consultation questionnaire will be live from the 10th of September until 15th of October on the council's website
  • ·  Dates for the focus groups and informal discussions are yet to be confirmed. If carers would you like to be involved in either they can please provide details in the questionnaire, email or call 0208 356 4711.
  • ·  The NHS Digital statutory survey will be launching on the 1st of October until 30th of November and will be sent via Hackney Council.
  • · There will be a two week overlap of both surveys, so if we could strongly encourage carers to complete both surveys should the opportunity arise.
  • · If we could also note that the difference between both surveys and maintain consistency in our communication to carers around this that would be much appreciated.

o The National Carers Survey results are used by the NHS Digital to learn more about whether services received by carers are helping them in their caring role and their life outside of caring, and also about their perception of the services provided to the person they care for.

o The local consultation questionnaire is specifically designed to help Hackney Council think about how it can shape and improve carers' services locally to meet the needs of adult carers in Hackney.

Please share this information with your team and any other colleagues that would likely to give their feedback. The more responses that are given will benefit the redesign of adult carers services.

 Should you have any questions or comments on any of the above then please use the following contact details: or call 0208 356 4711.

Living Wage Week is the annual celebration of the Living Wage movement in the UK and as ever, we’ll be celebrating with a series of flagship celebrations across the UK.

We invite you to join us on the morning of 5th November, at the Barbican Centre in central London, for the announcement of the London Living Wage 2018. You'll meet others in our movement who support the real Living Wage and go further than the government minimum to pay it to all their staff because they believe, like us, that fair day’s work should mean a fair day’s pay.

Please save the date in your diary and extend the invitation to members of your team who have benefitted from your commitment to the real Living Wage, your peers and supporters of the real Living Wage movement.

If you have an interesting real Living Wage story – or would like to play a leading role in this event – please do email:
