Are you looking after someone?
Do you help look after a relative, neighbour or friend?
Perhaps you look after your husband, wife, partner, a parent, or child if they are sick or disabled?
You may not be the only person who helps to care, but if you offer necessary help, and are not employed to provide care, then you are a carer.
Support for you as a carer
If you want to find a local group, activity or event in your area that can support you as a carer, try searching here on Staffordshire Connects. Just click on the right hand menu to find organisations and groups in your local area.
The Carers Hub can also support you as a carer by providing tailored advice, training and information.
They offer a whole range of support for carers of all ages including:
- Carers assessments and support planning
- Employment and skills
- Mental health
- Learning disabilities
- Health and wellbeing
If you are a carer and you have a need for support then you can ask the Carers Hub for a carers assessment. A carer assessment helps you to think about your caring role, how it affects your life and what support you may need.
You can have an assessment in your own right as a carer, regardless of whether the person(s) you care have had their own care and support needs assessment.
