If you give time and energy to support an adult with mental health needs, drug and alcohol issues or early onset dementia, then we can support you.
Carers Count includes a specialist service aimed at providing practical and emotional support to carers like you.
This service is commissioned by Kirklees Council to meet the needs of carers impacted by these issues. It has been proven that supporting carers in their caring roles lessens hospital admissions and carer stress or breakdown.
This support can include:
- Groups, which provide an opportunity to meet other carers and share similar experiences
- Carer breaks, which give you a regular break of up to 4 hours per month while we look after the person you care for, or an extended break of up to 5 hours when needed
- One-to-one support if you need someone to talk to about how you are feeling, or to access help and information to support you as a carer
Our service is free and confidential. If you would like to find out more about how we can help you, please visit the Contact Us page.
