We understand that caring for a family member or loved one is a very generous and selfless thing to do. Caring for someone with mental ill-health can also bring its own challenges.
Being a carer can take its toll on your own physical, emotional and mental health. We are here to support you in your caring role and to help bring some balance back into your life.
So whether you simply need someone to talk to about your own concerns, help with the complex needs of the person you care for, or someone to speak to on your behalf, we are here for you.
How can we help
Our friendly and experienced staff can offer:
- One to one support with a named support worker
- Carer led organisation, with carers needs put first
- Carer led groups across the county
- Information sessions
- Signposting to other services, organisations and charities
- Information on mental health conditions
We work in partnership with Caring Together and Centre 33, to provide a all age carer support service.
Centre 33 is here for all young people across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with emotional and practical support. If you are a young carer they can help with assessments, one to one support, specialist carer groups, information and advice, along with support around your transitions. They also train and support those working with young carers including their families, schools and partners to help them understand needs and provide help. Get in touch with them on 0333 4141809 or email@example.com, or drop in and see them.
If you are aged 18 or over and caring for someone, Caring Together is there to help you. It does not matter who you care for or what their condition is. They can help you with specialist information and advice, support with planning ahead, including for emergencies and when your caring role is likely to come to an end.
They also provide opportunities to meet other carers, develop skills and knowledge to help in your caring role, and have a break from caring. Whether you need support face-to-face, online or over the phone they are there for you. They are also working for you, to ensure the voices of carers are heard and their needs recognised. o find out about their full range of other services contact them at caringtogether.org, on 0345 241 0954 or firstname.lastname@example.org
