Carers look after a relative, friend or neighbour who cannot manage without help because of sickness, age or disability. The person cared for can live with you or by themselves or in a residential establishment.
There are nearly six million carers in the UK and becoming a carer can be a gradual process or one that may happen overnight. Whatever the circumstances, it is important that carers are recognised and feel supported.
If you are a carer, then Liverpool Carers Centre may be able to support you in your role. We work to improve the quality of life for carers in Liverpool by delivering support services that meet your needs.
As well as undertaking carers assessments (see link below) this also includes, :
- A flexible support service that can change as your needs change
- Support that is independent of statutory organisations, offering impartial advice and information
- Signposting to specialist organisations
- An opportunity to become involved in developing support for carers at a local level
