The term 'Carer' can often be confusing. We use it in terms of someone who provides support for a relative or friend who has a disability, long-term illness or other additional needs. Sometimes the term 'Carer' can get mixed up for those who work for care agencies and care homes.
We offer a wide range of ways to contact us and access support. For some people online is best so we offer online options to refer yourself to us whilst completing a self assessment which can be followed up with a more detailed assessment if required.
As a professional, making a referral to us is very easy.
Do you or someone you know care for a friend, relative, partner? Do you feel they deserve to be acknowledged for the hard work and support they provide? Then why not nominate them for the annual Jane Roebuck Carers Awards, where carers across the county will receive the recognition they deserve.
