Carlisle Carers - Caring for Carers

What We Do 

Caring for the Carers 

If you decide to seek help from Carlisle Carers, you will be given individual support from one of our trained Carers Support Workers. 

Your support worker can carry out a Carers Assessment. All Carers in the UK, aged 16+, are entitled to an assessment of their own needs; separate to the needs of those that they care for. 

The Carers Assessment aims to identify areas where greater support can be given to you as  carer, whether that be in the form of Occupational Therapist or Social Worker involvement, respite, help with your own health needs (both emotional and physical), and anything else you wish to discuss. 

We can provide you with Information on all aspects of caring to help you identify services that may help you and the person you care for. Sometimes, all you may need is a friendly listening ear. 

In times of crisis we may be able to help you access short term practical assistance via Carers Emegency Card. We may also be able to offer short term support via our Volunteer Scheme whose services include respite sitting, volunteer drivers for essential appointments, one to one support for carers and counselling. 

We organise Social Events and Activities for carers. These include trips, courses, and group meetings, giving quality time to the Carer, providing a break from the caring role. Have a look on our events page for information about our current events. 

If you are a Young Carer we have specialist Support Workers waiting to hear from you.
