                  Can Carers Count help you?  

 

 

Carers Count is a new service for any adult in Kirklees who gives, or has given, time and energy, without being paid, to look after an adult family member or friend who can not manage on their own. 

 

Carers Count recognises that being a carer can impact on your day to day life significantly, including, emotionally (it can be both rewarding and isolating), financially (you may be unable to work)and physically (your own health can suffer as a result).

 

 

Carers Count has been set up to promote the wellbeing of carers so they can continue in their caring role and have a life of their own by;

 

Providing quality advice and information

 

Running groups, activities and sessions.

 

Providing support and helping carers to support each other.

 

Helping carers have a voice and be heard through the advocacy service and the Carers Network.

 

Providing training

 

Helping to raise awareness of carers rights and issues to the wider public.

 

 

Any carer contacting and using the service can expect;

 

To be listened to and taken seriously

 

To be treated with respect.

 

To be supported in a way that meets their individual needs

 

 

If you are, or have been, a carer and would like to gain support from the Carers Count service, or advice and information, please get in touch;
