Welcome to Herefordshire Carers Support

MAKE CARERS COUNT: NATIONAL CARERS WEEK 8 – 14 JUNE 2015

 

Herefordshire Carers Support exists to ensure that carers are universally recognised as fundamental to the communities in which they live and to ensure that there is a balance between their caring responsibilities and their lives outside their caring role.

WE DO THIS BY:

  • Actively involving carers to tell us what services they wish to receive.
  • Sharing our knowledge and skills to inform others about best practice.
  • Promoting the participation of carers in their communities by recognising and overcoming the barriers that they face.
  • Participating in the development of policies that enhance equality and thereby challenging discrimination.
  • Working in partnership with other voluntary, statutory and private organisations.
  • Efficiently delivering services that are of a high quality and work across professional and administrative boundaries.

Our Services are linked to the following outcomes:

  • Carers have access to appropriate, relevant and accurate information.
  • Carers have recognition and respect for their role and offered an assessment in their own right.
  • Carers have access to a support system that includes cover for emergencies.
  • Professionals in Health and social services recognise and respect carers in their role.
  • Carers have financial security through access to work and benefits.
  • Carers have access to training to develop skills and lifelong learning.
  • Carers have a choice about maintaining the carer role and a choice of support options.
  • Young carers will achieve the standards of Every Child Matters.
