ADASS and ADCS have produced a draft template for a 'memorandum of understanding' (MoU) between children's and adult services regarding responsibility for assessment and support of young carers and young adult carers. This has been produced to aid local planning (and can be rewritten as necessary to suit local circumstances).

Please note this document does not have legal force in itself and does not amend or replace statutory or accepted best practice guidance, nor directly represent LGA or Government policy.
