Carer Support Information

If you are a Carer who helps and supports someone who can’t manage on their own, we want to ensure YOU get all the support YOU need.

We are trying to identify & support as many Carers as we can.

Particularly those people who may be looking after a member of their family or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks, don’t really regard themselves as a Carer and are undertaking this vital activity without help or support.

Did you know as a Carer, you are eligible for a free NHS Flu Vaccination?

Sefton Carers Centre provides free advice and guidance, emotional and practical support, training and a range of holistic therapies for unpaid carers living in Sefton.

A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help.

This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

In order to access all of our services for free you will need to register with the Carers Trust. By providing them with your details you will receive information and support which is tailored to your individual needs.

For more information and free registration please contact the Support Team

on 0151 288 6060, Monday to Friday, 9am – 4.30pm.

If you are caring for someone, Roe Lane Surgery would like you to let us know, so that we can ensure you receive all the support and information we can give, on topics such as benefit entitlement, access to respite care or maybe simply being there to provide a kindly ear when things get too much.

If you are a Carer, please download and print the Carer’s Identification and Referral Form.

Please complete this form and then hand it to a member of our Reception Team.
