Carers

Are you a Carer?

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

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring.
Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • 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?
