Shropshire Carers Service

Supporting Carers In Shropshire

 

Identifying Carers

Every day 6,000 people will become a carer. Carers Trust 4all offer emotional and practical support to unpaid carers, helping them to protect their health and wellbeing and cope with their caring role. Our advice services aim to provide a listening ear and can link carers into services and further support.

 

Who is a carer?

A carer is someone of any age who cares, unpaid, for a family member or friend who, due to illness, a disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without support.

 

Why we need to identify carers

Caring can be very rewarding, but also very demanding and can affect physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing. Many carers are trying to work, study and look after other family members in addition to their caring responsibilities. It is important to ensure carers are aware of support available as early as possible.

 

How Shropshire Carers Service can help 

  • By supporting carers to think about their own needs and plan action for change
  • By listening and offering a range of services and support to help carers improve their health and wellbeing, including; 1:1 support, information, advice, advocacy and signposting
  • By providing access to carer breaks, delivered by experienced Carer Support Workers, allowing carers to have some time to themselves
  • By providing access to our Carers Emergency Response Service CERS
  • By working in partnership to link carers with all other sources of help and support
  • By offering support with applications for attendance allowance, carers allowance and blue badges
  • By providing a varied programme of social events, peer support groups and outing
