Carers Lancashire - Improving Life for Carers
Carers Lancashire works across the county providing information and support to unpaid carers aged 18 and over.
The services offered are designed to not only help a carer continue in their caring role, but also to reduce the impact their caring role can have on their own health and wellbeing.
This support includes:
- Carers Assessment including eligibility for a Carers Personal Budget
- Planning for an emergency
- Specialist 1-1- and group support, including workers skilled in mental health, dementia, working within the BME community and health services
- Support to take a break including activities, courses and the Carers Caravans discounted holidays
- Respite provision through the Sitting in Service & Befriending
- Carers Help and Talk (CHAT) Line
- Information and signposting to other support services
- Support to access community, health & wellbeing services
- Volunteering opportunities
- Carers Awareness Briefings to professionals and organisations
Carers’ Hub Lancashire and Carers Link Lancashire work together under the name of Carers Lancashire to provide support across the whole county of Lancashire.
