Do you look after someone who is ill, frail or disabled?
If so, you are a Carer
You are a Carer if you provide unpaid necessary care by looking after an ill, frail or disabled family member, friend or partner who could not otherwise manage without your support.
The care you provide can be practical, personal, emotional or supervisory. You may need help with bathing, toileting, grocery shopping, paying bills, doctors’ appointments or just be there on the other end of the phone for reassurance.
The word “Carer” is used for people who provide unpaid care as opposed to those who are paid such as care workers, personal assistants and home helps.
The Carers’ Support Centre is here to help Carers who care for someone living in North Lincolnshire.
We will support the Carers of North and North East Lincolnshire and their families to reduce the impact of Caring on their wellbeing. We will give Carers a voice and empower them to influence and affect change.
We will be the first choice for Carers, their families and commissioners. The support and services delivered will be of the highest quality, timely, relevant and delivered by a competent, empathetic, non-judgemental team.
We make a positive difference to people’s lives
We take a holistic approach to supporting Carers
We are Carer focused and Carer led
