Are you a carer?

Carers provide support to someone who needs extra help to manage day-to-day life. A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour who could not manage without their help. This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.

Carers might not live in the same house and they do not have to be related to the person they look after. Most carers are happy to look after relations or friends, but sometimes they need extra support to continue their caring role. Caring for someone covers lots of different things, like helping with washing, dressing or eating, or taking someone to regular appointments.

 

How can we help you with your caring role?

Cheshire and Warrington Trust is the lead provider of Cheshire West Carer Support Services. We have offices in Northwich and Chester to provide the core elements of the service. We also have an office in Crewe.

We understand that all carers may have differing needs and Cheshire & Warrington Carers Trust can assist you in information regarding health issues, entitlements, mobility, grants for holidays, equipment and support.  We also offer a wide range of activities, training and events for Carers throughout the year across Cheshire.
