Local charity, Community Law Service have launched a new Carer Advice Project

The Carers Project is being provided through additional funding provided by British Gas Energy Trust until March 2022  to help support the advice needs of carers who live in Northamptonshire. The Project also supports carers who have recently ceased caring. Carers often experience barriers to accessing advice due to isolation and the everyday demands of providing care so service delivery will be responsive to these issues including home visits, telephone advice, and appointments at appropriate community venues and our own advice centres. The Project is working in partnership with Northamptonshire Carers.

The Project provides holistic one to one support for carers to include:

  • Welfare Benefits advice and income maximisation
  • Money and financial capability advice.
  • Energy advice
  • Awareness sessions for staff in agencies who support carers
  • Awareness sessions for carer groups.
  • Referral for a specialist in house Debt or Housing advice as applicable
  • Referral to other sources of support as applicable
