Carers Emergency Scheme

What does it do?

Once you have registered, you 'll be given a card with your own PIN number so that even if you can't tell people about the person you care for, help is only a phone call away.
You'll register initially with PRT Salford Carers Centre, which will pass your details on to Care on Call, the city council's mobile warden service and to Salford, Stockport and Trafford Crossroads.
In the event of an emergency, a phone call to the 24 hour emergency line, will let people know that you can't provide care. Your nominated carers will be contacted and asked to provide care during the immediate crisis. If they can't help, then Crossroads can provide short-term emergency care free of charge.

Who it is for?

A new carers emergency scheme allows Carers to fill in a simple form with details about the person they care for and space to nominate up to three people who can provide care in an emergency.
