Carers' Week

It's carers' week - see a great set of links on our new carers' page on the web-site here and a reminder of the services we provide for carers...

Family support: working closely with carers and family members to provide the best support for clients

Advocacy: supporting carers by representing their interests

Breaks for carers: engaging a person being cared for in an activity so that carers can take a break

Accessible information and advice: providing carers with the latest news and information relevant to them

Mutual support: enabling carers to support each other through carers’ groups

Giving carers a voice: especially in the planning of local services

Awareness raising: highlighting carers’ rights, such as the right to have a needs assessment
