A Carer is someone who provides unpaid support to a family member, partner, child, friend or neighbour who may be ill, frail, elderly, have a disability or long-term health issue or have mental health issues – and who could not manage without this support.
Carers do not necessarily live in the same home as the person they care for and may themselves be unwell, have a disability or long-term illness.
If you look after someone who couldn’t manage without your help your first stop should be to contact Carers Trust 4all who are now providing carer support services in Herefordshire. Call them on 01432 663057 or email [email protected]. Their team (which includes some of our former staff – friendly, experienced and helpful!) can offer information, one-to-one advice and help with getting the support and services that are relevant to you.
Here at Herefordshire Carers Support we are continuing to support local Carers groups, offer training opportunities, free counselling as well as trips and social events for Carers.
Sign up for our email updates if you are a Carer – and you can become a member of HCS for free too!
We aim to open up possibilities so that you can continue your caring responsibilities but also to take stock, meet others – and have some fun. Each Carer is individual and different, what helps one person may not help another but our activities will help you to explore ideas and think about what might help you.
