Having a voice
Torbay Carers Service value the opinion of carers and we use this information to develop our services.
We have a number of carers and former carers who are trained to evaluate our services.
We also have working parties involving carers in particular topics such as:
- Advice and Information
If you want to raise an issue about carers services or would like to be involved in improving our services, please contact us on 01803 208455 or via our contact form or post a letter to ‘Freepost Torbay Carers Service’. (Please do not add anything else to the envelope.)
You can also comment via Healthwatch’s Rate and Review site.
