Carers

Do you look after someone who is frail, disabled or mentally ill? If so you are a carer.

Caring for someone is an important and valuable role and is often a 24-hour job that can be very demanding and isolating. Carers are often ‘hidden’, looking after a family member, neighbour or friend without actually seeing themselves as a 'carer'.

We are keen to highlight the importance of carers, so please notify us if you help to look after someone who would not be able to cope without your support, so that we can look after your needs too. Carers are entitled to a Carer's Assessment which provides a chance to talk about their needs as a carer and the possible ways help could be given. It also looks at the needs of the person for whom they care. There is no charge for an assessment.

Please contact the Reception Team if you are a carer so that we can update our records and provide you with a carer's pack containing relevant information about national and local support services and help you understand any benefits you may be entitled to.

or you can telephone the Carers Line which is open Monday to Saturday 10:00 to 13:00 - 0117 9652200
