If you look after a member of your family or a friend you matter!
You deserve to get the most out of life!
Looking after a relative or a friend who has an illness or disability can be rewarding but it can also be extremely tough. The name many organisations attribute to this role is ‘unpaid Carer’. If you look after someone you can access a range of support in Ceredigion and from 1st April this year Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers will be providing some of this support. This includes:
- Proving information, advice and emotional support on an individual basis
- Group activities including training and social opportunities
- Help to access support to have a break from caring, including respite
Many unpaid Carers may already access Carers Support, attend a Carers group, or perhaps receive some respite; however many struggle alone and without support. If you or anybody you know would like a bit of support, whether it is to simply let off steam, get some advice or to have some short-term respite, just get in touch on 0333 014 3377 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Ceredigion County Council and Hywel Dda University Health Board have jointly commissioned Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers which is a consortium made up of three highly reputable Carers Trust Network Partners; Credu Connecting Carers (who will be listening to what is important to Carers and providing information and support), Carers Trust Crossroads Sir Gar (who will provide short-term respite in the South of the county) and Carers Trust Crossroads North Wales (who will provide short-term respite in the North of the county). These organisations are entirely devoted to supporting Carers and their families to get the most out of life, you can find out more about us at www.credu.cymru, Facebook page ‘Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers’ or on Instagram and Twitter @GofalwyrC.
Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers would love to hear from you! If you have any questions, if you would like support or if you would like to be one of our advisors to sit on an advisory group to ensure that the support that is given is of excellent quality. You can contact us by emailing email@example.com or you can always just call us on 0333 014 3377.
If your organisation recognises, identifies or works with unpaid Carers and would like to work with Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers or make referrals so Carers can access the support available please also get in touch.
