Draft Moray Carers Strategy 2023-2026 - Engagement & Consultation
Carers contribute an essential role in society, often without recognition of the commitment they make and the impact it can have on them. The Moray Integration Joint Board would like to express its gratitude to carers across Moray and publicly recognise the outstanding contribution they make to our health and care system and to our communities.
The Carers Strategy sets out how Health & Social Care Moray (HSCM) plans to deliver on its commitment to support unpaid carers of all ages in Moray over the next three years. It has been shaped by the voice and experience of carers, and the organisations that support them, to ensure that the priorities for the future are based on what is most important.

Review of the Moray Joint Board Integration Scheme
Opened: 16 Dec 2022
Closed: 13 Jan 2023
Stakeholders with an interest in health and social care services are invited to give their views on proposed changes to the Integration Scheme for Moray.
Since 2016, Moray Council and Grampian NHS Board have delegated responsibility for planning most community health and social care service to the Moray Integration Joint Board (IJB).
Moray Council and Grampian NHS Board have now elected to delegate additional services to the IJB. These are social care services provided to children and families, fostering and adoption services, child protection services and justice services. Children and families health services including health visiting and school nursing are already the responsibility of the IJB.
The delegation of children’s social care services and justice services to the IJB requires a revision of the Integration Scheme. This is the legal document which details out how the local authority and health board work together as required by the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014.
The Board has eight voting members – four are elected members appointed by Moray Council and four are non-executive members of the Grampian NHS Board. They are supported by a number of non-voting professional, clinical and stakeholder advisers.
The IJB directs how services are delivered by local authority and NHS staff working through the partnership of Health & Social Moray, and by organisations from the Third and Independent Sectors.
Children’s social care and justice services will continue to be delivered and commissioned by Moray Council through the health and social care partnership with resources transferring to the IJB. Staff will continue to be employed by the local authority.
The consultation on the changes to the Integration Scheme for Moray runs until 13 Jan 23. Feedback from stakeholders will help inform any further revisions to the document which will be presented to elected members and Grampian NHS Board for approval and then submitted to the Scottish Government.
The proposed revised scheme can be viewed on the Health & Social Care Moray website at hscmoray.co.uk along with a guide to the revisions.
