Good practice guidelines in supporting older family carers of people with learning disabilities

The Older Family Carers Initiative has produced these guidelines to provide useful good practice information and ideas for supporting older family carers. 

They are intended as a tool to help Learning Disability Partnership Boards, commissioners and frontline workers reflect on the way that older family carers are supported in their area. 

There are also designed for older family carers, to inform then of their rights, what support they could receive and of the processes outlined in Valuing People that will affect them.
