The Triangle of Care
The Triangle of Care (ToC) membership scheme promotes shared working between carers, professionals and people using services.
The Triangle of Care recommends better partnership working between service users and their carers, and organisations. It was developed by carers and staff to improve carer engagement in acute inpatient and home treatment services.
The guide includes lots of good practice examples. These have been shared by organisations to enable faster and wider carer involvement and support. These and many other good practice examples are available on the Royal College of Nursing’s Virtual Ward – in the Triangle of Care and carers and families sections.
The Triangle of Care programme has shown that many frontline staff are unaware of who young carers are and their needs. Carers Trust has produced a supplementary resource to help staff understand the needs of young and young adult carers, the challenges to identifying them and how to overcome them.
