Carers Support Information

If you’re a Carer who helps and supports someone who can’t manage on their own, we want to ensure YOU get all the support YOU need.

We are trying to identify & support as many Carers as we can.

Particularly those people who may be looking after a member of their family or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks, don’t really regard themselves as a Carer and are undertaking this vital activity without help or support.

If you are caring for someone, we really would like you to let us know, so that we can ensure you receive all the support and information we can give, on topics such as benefit entitlement, access to respite care or maybe simply being there to provide a kindly ear when things get too much.

 If you are a Carer, please ask our Receptionist for a Carer’s Identification and Referral Form.Please complete this form and then hand it to our Receptionist
