If there are a few carers in your family, including young carers, who are all caring for someone, our Carer Support Workers can support you as a whole family. We can look at how caring roles impact on different family members and provide both one to one support to individuals and whole family support where it’s needed.

For example if young and adult carers within a family are heavily impacted we can consider applying for a family carers’ break payment to allow the family to do something together and we can provide access to family trips and training so that you all benefit from the same service.

This holistic approach to strengthening family carers to support each other can improve both the carers’ and the cared for person’s wellbeing and ability to cope immensely.
