Think Carer

When Carers are valued for their contribution to the community and their needs are recognised then everyone benefits. If Carers have access to the advice and services they need, they will become more resilient. It is more likely they will be able to continue in their caring role whilst also address some of their own needs.

The Think Carer project will build on Herefordshire Carers Support’s previous work with health professionals and employers. We will also engage with mainstream organisations to raise awareness and encourage systemic change regarding Carer recognition.

All organisations face a climate of reducing resources which has an impact on what can be achieved. However, there are examples of good practice where small changes have had a positive impact for all.

This is an evolving project which will develop with the voice of the carers in Herefordshire.

Resources will be added to the website throughout the year.

We aim to produce a space where good practice around the county can be shared by all.

We welcome contributions from everyone. Currently we are able to offer:

Regular Carer Awareness Sessions

Carer Aware Training for Professionals

Joint project work - e.g. to introduce Carers’ Leads/Champions

Talks to groups

Sharing of good practice
