Carers Direct

Are You a Carer?

If yes, please ask at reception for a carer's form.

There is a wealth of information on the NHS website about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.



    • Telling people

      Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

    • Taking a break

      Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

    • Housing and carers

      Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
