Here you will find organisations that offer practical and emotional support for carers along with advice and guidance factsheets.
Informal carers provide substantial, unpaid support to someone who needs extra help to manage. They may not live in the same house, and they do not have to be related to the person they look after. Most informal carers are happy to look after relations or friends, but sometimes they need some extra support to continue in their caring role.
This category provides information on practical and emotional support for carers. Services may be provided by individuals, voluntary organisations, private companies, the NHS or Cheshire West and Chester Council. While some are free, others have to be paid for, so it is always worth checking to make sure you are getting all the benefits you are entitled to. If you would like some help with this, go to the Money Matters section.
Click on the categories on the right to find out more about the services on offer to carers. Advice and guidance sheets are also available along with information your local carers forum groups.
