Adferiad - Unpaid Carers: Information, Advice & Support
Providing help and support for people with mental health, substance use, addiction and other complex needs.
Time for me – Funded support
As an unpaid carer of an adult, you are eligible to receive 18 hours of free support provided by a local, independent care / support service (part of the directory of the Catalyst for Care project). The purpose of this support is to provide the carer with respite but present an opportunity for the cared for to reengage within the local community with support from a micro-enterprise.
Young Carers are children or young people aged under 18 who look after someone in their family who has an illness, a disability, poor mental health or issues with substance misuse. They may be taking on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that an adult would normally do.
Young carers aged between 16 and 25 are often called young adult carers.
The practices within our cluster hold a list of those patients who are Carers and who have agreed to be on the register. The register enables the practice to provide Carers with information on local and national support and help. We can also arrange a referral to Social Services for a Carer’s Needs Assessment and other voluntary service agencies if required.
Within the Tywi, Taf,Together area we aim to raise awareness for the needs of Carers and to support them with practical help and information.
CARERS SUPPORT SERVICE
Carers say that access to information, financial support and breaks in caring are vital in helping them manage the impact of caring on their lives.
Our Carers Support Service provides free and confidential information, advice and support to Carers. We produce and distribute information for carers and organise regular events in partnership with other organisations.
Our regular ebulletin aims to inform Carers and the people they care for of policy issues, services, and organisations which may be of some help to them.
In addition to the information we produce, we facilitate regular events for Carers including coffee mornings, focus groups, and annual events to mark national Carers Week in June and Carers Rights Day in November.
