The Carers' Hub provides a single point of access for all Carers including both young and adult Carers in the borough. The Hub exists to ensure that Carers of all ages have access to information, advice and a wide range of support services. These support services are designed to help Carers continue in their caring role for as long as they choose and to reduce the impact the caring role can have on a Carers own health and wellbeing. Support can include support from a dedicated Carers support worker specialised in fields such as young Carers support, mental health, dementia and ethnicity for example. They will also work with you to create a support plan to meet your individual needs. This could include; 1-2-1 or group based support, Peer support, and support to take a break including access to a volunteer sitting in service where a volunteer is matched with the person cared for to provide a short break from a caring role.
Please contact the service provider for details of any costs.
