We expect this funding will identify and test a range of new and existing interventions to support unpaid carers, which could include respite and breaks, peer group and wellbeing support and new ways to combine these to maximise their impact. We will continue to work with stakeholders, including organisations working with young carers and people with lived experience of caring as we develop our proposals.
