DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE?
WHO LOOKS AFTER YOU?
Carers We Are Here For You!
It is with deep regret that we have had to close the doors to both our offices in Stoke & Staffordshire in line with Government guidance released on Monday 23rd March, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. It is important to us that we protect you to enable you to stay safe and well. But we want you to know we are here for you and want to support you during these unprecedented times.
Although our face to face groups have been paused, we are continuing to provide support to all Adult & Young Carers via telephone support, online information, advice & guidance. Alongside this we are offering emotional wellbeing and befriender calls, WhatsApp Carer support groups and virtual tea and coffee mornings to keep Carers connected. If you are interested in any of these or would like to speak with someone please contact us on

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.
