Booking Replacement Care

What do you want when you book replacement care (respite)?  

Devon County Council would like to know what you would like in a replacement care booking system. 

It could have the same type of features as any on-line booking or shopping application (e.g. Trivago, Amazon), and must have method of searching for care, bookingpaying for care (if relevant) and other features, such as feedback.   

The system will be for anyone to use – self funders or people using commissioned DCC service.

Here are some examples of sites which you might use already which probably contain the features you would like to use. 


This survey is available online here

Thank you. 

Volunteers’ Week 1st-7th June 19 gives us the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to our amazing volunteers. Volunteers lend their time and expertise to support carers in their local communities.

Carers volunteer for a whole variety of reasons but most want to do something useful and help others. It’s a great way to make new friends, try something different and learn new skills. You can read about the experiences of one of our volunteers in the health and wellbeing page in our Summer 19 magazine If you would like to find out more information about volunteering with us visit our website:
