Carers Assessment

What does it do?

A Carers Assessment is simply a discussion with you that will help us understand the physical, emotional and practical impact that caring has on your life and to ensure that your needs are taken into account.
As a carer you have a right to have your needs considered when decisions are being made about support for the person you care for. This will include any education, training, work or leisure activity that you would like to take part in.

Who it is for?

If you are an adult providing a regular and substantial amount of unpaid care for someone aged 18 or over, you can ask for a carers assessment.
