COVID-19 Statement March 2020
Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust have taken the decision to suspend all face-to-face service delivery, effective from Tuesday 17th March 2020. We believe this is in the best interests of our staff and volunteers as well as the carers who we support, many of whom care for someone with disabilities or serious health problems.
All groups and events will be postponed until the end of June 2020. This will be reviewed on a regular basis after this time, in accordance with government guidelines.
During this time, we will:-
– Maintain our helpline service
– Direct carers to appropriate services and health provision, as appropriate
– Provide emotional support
– Identify carers with high levels of need and offer Keep in Touch calls
– Increase our online presence
– Utilise social media to remain in contact
Staff will be working remotely and our offices will not be accessible for carers during this time. We are aware that the need for information, advice and support for carers remains critical during these uncertain times. We shall do everything we can to make sure we are able to help.
We will endeavour to provide regular updates on this situation as we are aware of the rapidly changing advice issued.
Offering information, advice and support to Carers across Cheshire
Carers may even be juggling paid work with their unpaid caring responsibilities at home. The term carer should not be confused with a care worker, or care assistant, who receives payment for looking after someone.
If you are a Carer, Cheshire & Warrington Carers Trust may be able to help make things easier for you. We deliver a wide range of local support services to meet the needs of Carers in our community. These range from support services catered to the Carer, the needs of the person you care for and the services provided by other organisations
Carers have different 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.
