Have you heard about Cheshire East Carers’ Hub?

The Cheshire East Integrated Carers Hub is delivered by n-compass northwest, in partnership with Child Action Northwest and The Alzheimer’s’ Society. The Carers’ Hub provides a single point of access for all Carers including adult, parent and young carers. The hub will ensure that Carers of all ages will have access to information, advice and a wide range of support services. These support services are designed to help Carers continue in their caring role for as long as they choose and to reduce the impact the caring role can have on a Carers own health and wellbeing.

Support could include:

  • 1-2-1 or group based support
  • Peer support
  • Support to take a break
  • Information, advice and guidance
  • Access to a 24 hour chatline manned by other carers
  • Support to access community, health and wellbeing services
  • Access to activities, training, living well fund and much more
  • Specialist support for Carers of people with dementia
  • Giving carers the opportunity to apply for funds from the *Living Well Fund 

 

The Cheshire East Young Carers Project will support young carers between the ages of 5 and 18 years in their caring roles.

        

It is recognised that young carers can be affected in a variety of different ways such as their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, lack of time to complete their school or college work and having no time to socialise with friends. The Young Carers’ Hub can provide support for these areas and carers can either get in touch themselves or someone else can do this for them.

Closed groups are now being held in the following areas:

– Crewe group at Crewe Sea Cadets;

– Congleton group at Congleton Football Club;

– Macclesfield group at Fermain Academy;

– Middlewich group at Middlewich WHYCH Centre
