Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill?
We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support. We know that carers are often "hidden" looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks, and may not see themselves as a carer.
As a Carer you are entitled to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services. A Carer's Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a carer, and the possible ways help could be given. It also looks at the needs of the person you care for. There is no charge for an assessment.
Please as for a Carer's identification and referral form which you can complete to let us know about your caring responsibilities.
