Getting Help and Connected as a carer

We have chosen the Carers support centre to support carers in their role through information, advice and signposting to other organisations who can help.

‘Getting help and connected’ is the first step to getting connected to information and support that will help carers in their role.

It is a short questionnaire and action plan for all newly identified carers and has been designed to identify individual needs and how caring affects their lives.

It provides supporting information and help and can be completed with or without help from the Carers support centre.

Carers can ask for a re-assessment at any stage. After the first carers assessment, there is a different form for carers to complete either on their own or with a member of staff from the Carers Support Centre. We also write to carers each year on the anniversary of their assessment to offer a review assessment.
