Carers assessment

If you are a carer, you are entitled to a Carers Assessment which helps you think about what support you may need as well as how you can have a life outside caring.

carers supported in 2017-18

Once a Carers Assessment is received, your needs will be addressed by further support and guidance from Carers Centre staff, Depending on the issues identified, this may be carried out in a series of 1-2-1 support sessions with an assigned worker or could be provided through information and advice 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.
