What is a carer’s assessment?
A carer’s assessment gives you a chance to think about what support you need to continue caring as well as how you can have a life outside of caring.
How do I get a carer’s assessment?
First, you’ll need to complete a self-assessment. You can do this quickly and easily online on Liverpool City Council’s website:
If you would prefer to complete a paper-and-pencil self-assessment you can get a copy by:
Calling us - 0151 705 2307
Emailing us - email@example.com .
Or call in, Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm to see us at:
Mount Vernon Green
You can also request that a social worker helps you to complete your self-assessment.
What happens when I have completed a self-assessment?
A carer development worker at Liverpool Carers Centre will work with you on a support plan that could:
- Help you to stay healthy
- Contain advice on education or carers’ training
- Take you through your rights if you are still in
- Make sure you’re getting the right financial support
Help you to have a break.
As well as the carer development worker, you can also request that a social worker works with you on your plan.
