Polling by Carers UK suggests that 31% of unpaid carers in the UK have seen their health and wellbeing suffer as a result of their caring role. By supporting carers effectively, we can help improve carer health and avoid carer burnout.
The Carers Centre works with Primary Care services across the city to help improve the identification, recognition and support for unpaid carers within Brighton and Hove.
Services we offer for Primary Care Professionals:
- Carer Awareness Training for Professionals, either online or in-person
- Resources for display in your practice
- Information booths to help the carers using your services to access the support they are entitled to
- Support to meet the Carer Friendly GP Quality Markers and help completing the accompanying declaration template.
Professionals can refer carers to us directly using our online form.
