CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) GUIDANCE
We will continue to be available to support carers, although there has been some changes to help control the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
If you have any concerns about coronavirus and what it may mean for you and the person you care for Carers UK have guidance around being prepared for circumstances where you may not be able to provide care support as well as other helpful advice.
For any further support with being prepared, or for any other support with your caring role, please contact our helpline on 0330 123 1937.
We are your first stop for information, advice and guidance, as well as completing full carers' assessments and training across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire.
WHO IS A CARER?
A carer is someone who helps provide unpaid care, usually to a relative or friend, in their day-to-day life. This is not the same as someone who provides care professionally, or through a voluntary organisation.
Young Carers between the ages of
5 - 18 years old, provide unpaid assistance and care to another person. This is usually a family member, who requires physical and/or emotional support on a regular or significant basis, such as a parent or sibling.
