Who are Carers?
A Carer is someone who provides unpaid support to a family member, partner, child, friend or neighbour who may be ill, frail, elderly, have a disability or longterm health issue or have mental health issues - and who could not manage without this support.
Carers do not necessarily live in the same home as the person they care for and may themselves be unwell, have a disability or long-term illness.
If you are a Carer please let us know - tell reception so we can record it.
As a Carer you are entitled to a Health Check and a Flu Vaccination annually
Thank you, it is important to keep us informed.
Support for adults and older people
If you need information or advice on a range of issues such as care and support, health, staying safe, being independent, caring for others or things to do, we can help.

Young Carers Project
Do you help to look after someone in your family? Is this because of:
- Drug or alcohol misuse?
- Physical illness?
- Mental illness?
You are a young Carer and we are here to help.
We work with young carers who are 18 years of age and under.
We support young carers from armed forces families.
‘‘I feel really supported and able to talk honestly about my worries, meeting with my Centre 33 worker and having a plan is like having a weight lifted off my shoulders.”
Our Young Carers Project can help you by:
- Giving you someone to talk to
- Working with you to make sure your voice is heard
- Offering you a young carers needs assessment to understand how caring impacts you
- Helping you to meet other young carers
- Helping you with your move to secondary school
- Offering you a transitions assessment if you are aged 16+
Just get in touch and we will contact you to find out more about you and your family and how we can help.
