Beta - we'd love your feedback on our website
Find out all the help, support, advise and opportunities available to carers in the borough.
A carer is someone who provides unpaid care for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without the carer’s support.
We have services specially designed for younger carers.
An assessment is simply a discussion with you that will help us understand what help and support you might need on a day to day basis.
As a carer, you may be entitled to one or more state benefits to help you with the costs.
Useful places to go for information and advice to support you in your caring role.
We know that caring for someone else can be hard. Sometimes just having a short break from your day to day responsibilities is all you need.
Carers still need the freedom to pursue any training, learning, or work opportunities and time to attend events and activities.
Carers often tell us that they are worried about what will happen to the person they care for in an emergency situation or if they need to plan for end of life care.
If you have an interest in supporting a vulnerable adult then becoming a shared live carer may be the job for you.
If you care for someone else there may come a time when you have to manage their affairs.
Putting people at the heart of the system.
The Provider Quality and Improvement Team carry out monitoring visits, assessments, and checks of social care services in the borough.
