Do you look after someone who could not manage without your help?
If you are looking after a partner, relative, child, neighbour or friend who has a long term illness or is disabled or frail, then you are a Carer and we are here to support you.
How can we help you?
Many Carers do not see themselves as such because they see themselves as a parent, spouse or partner, son or daughter, friend or neighbour. One in ten of the population are Carers.
As a result Carers often miss out on services, support, advice and benefits which may be available.
Carers Support can help Carers from all communities across Mole Valley by providing practical information and emotional support.
Our services include:
Carer Advisers. They provide individual support to people caring for someone with any long term illness or disability.
Emotional Support Service. This service is for those Carers who need time to talk through concerns and feelings.
- Local and national information on services available for Carers and the people they care for including benefits and financial information
- A free Newsletter
- A website (www.carerssupportmolevalley.org.uk)
- A Facebook page (Carers Support Mole Valley)
Events and activities. We regularly arrange events and activities for Carers (and where possible the people they care for). These are promoted on our website and through our Newsletter.
All our services are free and confidential.
Our office is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm, although we do try to provide a longer service if our staff are available.
