Calderdale Carers Project

Carers support in Calderdale

What does it do?

We offer a person-centred service to support you in your caring role and empower you through self-management.

Our Team includes two Caseworkers, a part-time Counsellor, four Looking After Me tutors, a GP Development Worker, Operations and Administration workers and a Chief Officer. All of our team members are based at Rimani House and are trained to provide support to Carers.

Our Vision

To improve the lives of carers in Calderdale.

Our Mission

To work with carers to:

  • Ensure they are provided with information
  • Receive emotional support
  • Have a break
  • Maintain their own identity and health
  • Have a voice and ensure that it is heard


Our services – an overview

We have up to date information about services, benefits and issues that affect carers. We can also allocate a caseworker to address specific needs and issues and help to access counselling where appropriate.

We offer regular carers’ support groups across Calderdale and a varied range of activities and courses designed to give carers a break and improve their own health and wellbeing.

We support carers aged 18-25 and have a dedicated worker for Young Adult Carers. This service offers specific activities and support focused on the needs of the age group.

We work in partnership with Calderdale Council to provide Emergency Backup Plans and Carers Needs Assessments.

Calderdale Council offers a Carers Needs Fund grant to carers to enable them to have a break. This can be applied for once every three years. We work in partnership with the Council to offer this service.
