DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE?
WHO LOOKS AFTER YOU?
The Carers' Hub offers information, advice, guidance and support to carers on behalf of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Staffordshire County Council
We provide a free of charge service to all unpaid adult and
young carers across the county, including carers
who live out of the area but provide care for someone who
does live in Staffordshire.
Pouch's Magical Worry Cheeks
Set on a typical school day, Cleo, James and Sophie are struggling as they are carrying the weight of their worries in their school bags. It is then we meet Pouch the magical school hamster, who through talking, is able to alleviate these worries, filling up his hamster cheeks and instilling the children with a positive "YouCan" mentality.
WELCOME TO THE CARERS' HUB
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.
