The CarerLinks team at Crossroads Together would like to learn more about how carers are coping during the Covid-19 outbreak. We would also like to identify anyone who requires support and what type of support is needed to determine if we can help.

Complete survey here

Every day 6,000 people will become a carer. Our CarerLinks service ensures our team of Carer Advisors are the first point of contact for carers. By offering practical and emotional support, advice, advocacy and signposting to all sources of support available to carers, they ensure that carers only tell their story once.

Who is a carer?

A carer is someone of any age who cares, unpaid, for a family member or friend who, due to illness, a disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without support.

Why we need to identify carers

Caring can be very rewarding, but also very demanding and can affect physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing. Many carers are trying to work, study and look after other family members in addition to their caring responsibilities. It is important to ensure carers are aware of support available as early as possible.

How we can help

  • By supporting carers to think about their own needs and plan actions for change
  • By listening and offering a range of services and support to help carers improve their health and wellbeing, including; 1:1 support, information, advice, advocacy and signposting
  • By providing carer breaks, delivered by experienced Carer Support Workers, allowing carers to have some time to themselves
  • By working in partnership to link carers with all other sources of help and support
