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. How will you be able to ensure that the person you care for will not be left without support?
The Carers’ Emergency Plan (CEP) is provided by the local authority and is designed to give you peace of mind in such circumstances. The CEP will provide you and the person you care for with access to a rapid message handling service, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If the arrangements break down for whatever reason, Social Services will be alerted to the situation.
This service is free and all information is treated in the strictest confidence in compliance with GDPR.
