The minutes of the meeting held on 28 February 2018 were confirmed as a correct record.

Members considered a report that provided an update on the work undertaken by the Adult Carers' Support Service, since it began operating, on 1st January 2018. The report also referred to the Time Out Service, and a review that had been undertaken. The Group was provided with options for delivery of this service.

It was noted that the Service was supported by the budget for Carers Personal Budgets and that budget had been increased to 105k to reflect the anticipated increase in demand.

It was agreed that National Carers' Week, in June, this year, was a key opportunity to raise awareness of the service and further discussion, in this regard, would take place outside the meeting.

The CCG representative suggested that awareness raising sessions be held with care coordinators. The CGG would direct the coordinators to increase advice to carers (including young carers) and referrals rate could be monitored.

With regard to the Time Out Service it was agreed that it would be useful to understand some of the reasons why carers were accessing the service.

Consideration was given to a report relating to the Stroke Association's Stroke Recovery Service, Stockton. The Chair had agreed that this report could be presented, as an urgent item, as it was important that the proposed joint work was considered at the earliest opportunity.

The Group was reminded that it had recently approved an extension of funding to the Service, until the end of May 2018, in order to allow a review.

It was explained that, subsequently, and following discussions with the CCG it was considered that a joint piece of work was required to get greater clarity around the acute stroke pathway and to investigate possible overlaps with other commissioned services. In addition it had been confirmed that Stroke Association funding did not come under the carers strand of the Better Care Fund (BCF).
