Carers Advice

There has been an increase in unpaid, family friend, carers, providing more hours of care, having less opportunities for breaks and time away from caring. This will have a big impact on the many who are caring, both adult carers and young carers. It is important we keep asking the  question ‘are you looking after someone’ and letting carers know that there is support out there for them, so they are not left to care alone and can think about their own wellbeing. 

A new information pack has been developed by the Carers Centre. The new online carers information pack can be found on the Carers Centre website. 

https://www.thecarerscentre.org/information-pack/ 

This is a new resource we have developed to try and help people access our information where they are using more online services and less likely to be able to receive one of the carer information packs from within a GP practice.
