Here is a list of the pages available on our website. At Halton Carers’ Centre we work to reach unpaid young & adult carers across Halton and develop services for them. Our website explains the services we can provide and how they can help you to manage your caring role confidentially, have some time for yourself and stay well.
About Halton Carers
Many people with caring responsibilities often don’t see themselves as carers, but rather as a family member, neighbour or friend.
If you ever contact the Carers Centre and speak to any of our staff members, you will find them all to be very friendly and approachable.
The board of trustees oversee our finances, operational work and support of carers in Halton. Many of our them are carers themselves.
Donations and fundraising efforts make a real difference in our region. There are many ways you can help raise funds for Halton Carers.
The Halton Carers Centre Lottery is an opportunity for you to help us raise money for carers in Halton, and have a chance of winning a prize!
Looking after a relative, friend or neighbour can be very isolating and difficult for some carers to share their concerns with other people.
Often carers just need to talk to someone who understands what they are going through. We provide opportunities for carers to talk to other carers.
If there are a few carers in your family, including young carers, our Carer Support Workers may be able to support you and your family.
We usually hold regular Carers’ Forums to enable carers to get together with other carers, professionals in Halton and Carers’ Centre staff.
Our fully qualified therapist provides body massage, reflexology, facials, manicure, pedicure, eyebrow tidy or hot wax treatment.
Our Carers Support Workers are here to help you with any issues you may have, we have a wide variety of information and support available in Halton.
Many carers find their caring role can take its toll on their feet. Our podiatry service is a 1 hour treatment from a fully qualified podiatrist.
We manage a Carers’ Personalised Break Fund to enable carers to have a break from their caring role, which is paid for by NHS Halton CCG.
We provide a number of support groups for our carers, including a Coffee Group, a Young Carers Group, a Dementia Carers’ and Mental Health Group.

We have a GP Worker and Hospital Worker funded by NHS Haltons CCG to help GP practices and hospitals to identify and support carers.
We share your information with HBC’s Social Care Services and Halton’s CCG, all have processes in place to make sure that they comply with GDPR.
Providing care to someone in their own home can entitle a carer to an assessment of their needs which can help them to continue caring.
If you are looking after someone regularly you may worry about what will happen if you are taken ill, or are in an accident or similar emergency.
When assessing the impact of caring on your wellbeing, HBC will ask you to complete a short questionnaire which takes about 10 minutes to complete.
