Care For You

Caring is being a rainbow for someone’s cloud

Carer Support Service

We aim to provide support to carers to maintain their well-being while caring for a relative, partner or friend who is from an African and Caribbean back ground who is recovering from mental ill health.

How is this achieved?

The Carer Coordinator will help you to complete a Carer’s Assessment to identify the areas in your life you would like to improve to enable you to continue in your caring role.  The Carer Coordinator will help you to achieve your goals.

We can also support you in other areas:

Signposting to other services for support and assistance in your caring role.

Well-being & Recovery

It is important to us that your well-being improves as a result of using this service. To monitor this you will be asked to complete a Well-being Questionnaire every month.  Your scores on this questionnaire will tell us where you may be having some problems or where you are making progress.  You and the Care Coordinator can look at ways to work through any difficult areas.

To use this service you will need to be:
