Carers Support Workers

Our Carers Support Workers provide individual support to people caring for someone with any long term illness or disability. This includes access to our Carer Wellbeing Fund, a range of equipment to support independent living and information on financial support that may be available. 
 
Our specialist workers offer practical and emotional support to help you in your caring role including: 
  • Mental Health
  • Learning Difficulties
  • Autism and Asperger Syndrome
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Parent Carers
  • Young Adult Carers
  • Dementia Carer Wellbeing

Emotional Support Service

This service is for those carers who need time to talk through their concerns and feelings. We offer:
  • Counselling sessions with a specially trained counsellor 
  • A Telephone Call Back Service, as caring can sometimes be isolating and hearing a friendly voice every now and then can help to relieve this
  • Online counselling through our website
  • Other support for emotional wellbeing and relaxation 

Information

We can provide:
  • Local and national information on services available for carers and the people they care for including benefits and financial information 
  • A free newsletter 
  • A website www.carerssupport.org.uk with helpful information and links to other useful carer and support organisations

Events and Activities

We regularly arrange events and activities for carers such as:
  • Workshops and open meetings, where you can have your say, including our ‘Carers Voice Network’
  • Carers Support Groups
  • Skills Training to help carers look after their own health and wellbeing
  • Access to low cost complementary therapies
  • Social Events and Networking
  • Online forums & blogs
We have a Carers Planning Group to help plan some of our events such as Carers Week, Carers Rights Day and Conferences. The Group includes carers from the Carers Voice Network and colleagues from partner organisations - Crossroads, Carers Health Team, Red Cross and Carers UK. Notes of the meetings can be downloaded from the side bar
