Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

  • Carer Services Prescription

Are you caring for someone and feel emotionally or physically overwhelmed?  would a break make a difference to your well being?

Your GP can issue you with a free 'prescription' to enable a member of the care service to contact you with information.  They will visit you to discuss the most appropriate form of support, which could include a free short break.  They can point you in the right direction to where you can find out more about caring, your rights, free services or benefits you may be entitled to.

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
