We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who, whatever their age, may be caring without help or support. We know that carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day-to-day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.
As a Carer, you are also entitled to have your needs assessed by Social Services. A Carer’s Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a Carer and the possible ways help could be given. It also looks at the needs of the person you care for. There is no charge for an assessment.
