Carers Information

Carers

Are you a carer?  Do you, unpaid, look after a friend or relative who is ill, frail, disabled, mentally ill or misuses drugs or alcohol?

This surgery is keen to recognise the valuable contribution that carers make. We are currently working with a local voluntary organisation, Carers in Hertfordshire, to identify carers and give them support. With your permission we can put you in touch with Carers in Hertfordshire who can offer information, support and regular free newsletters for carers. Please complete this form, and send it to the surgery, along with this survey. Alternatively, please complete the survey online here.

The Carewaves newsletters are packed with lots of articles about what we have been up to. View the newsletter to read about:

  • how the Care Act will affect you
  • how pharmacies are prescribing support for carers
  • what our VIP Guest Speakers said at our Annual Conference

Are you a young carer?

Carers in Herts are currently working with Hertfordshire 1125 on a young carers section of the Hertfordshire Young People’s Manifesto. The two topics selected by young carers are:
 
Young Carer Awareness: awareness of young carers’ responsibilities, impact on education and personal life, and recognition and support for their caring role
Opportunities for young carers: availability of activities and opportunities, and the barriers for young carers in accessing these including financial, accessibility and location.
Carers in Herts would like as many young carers as possible to complete a survey on this subject. Find out more…
