Welcome to the Carers Hub, a single point of contact for carers and their families in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. We are here to improve the lives of carers of all ages through support, advice, information and training.
In the 2011 census approximately 27,000 people in Stoke-On-Trent (11% of the population) identified themselves as providing unpaid care - approximately 800 of these were young carers.
The same census highlighted just under 90,000 people in Staffordshire providing unpaid care, with a further 2,000 young carers.
The hub exists to ensure that all carers are aware of and have access to a wide range of support services designed to ease their caring responsibilities and enjoy what life has to offer outside these.
If you provide regular care to a friend, family member or neighbour in Stoke-On-Trent or Staffordshire you may be eligible to access a wide range of support services to help you in your caring responsibilities as well as in your life outside.
Find out how we can support you with your caring responsibilities and your life outside.
