Carers\' Assessments

Carers' Assessments 


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 - carerscentre@localsolutions.org.uk .

Or call in, Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm to see us at:

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
     paid employment

  • 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.
