Adult Carers

Many carers face emotional and financial difficulties. Many have given up their income, education or employment prospects or pension rights to care for someone. Others attempt to juggle jobs and their caring responsibilities. Taking on a caring role can lead to feelings of isolation, frustration, depression and can result in ill health. Access to information, emotional support, advocacy, financial support and opportunities to take a break can help manage the impact of caring on the lives of carers.

Cumbria County Council presented with award
County Council Carers Questionnaire
Dawn , our CEO , was recently on That's TV Cumbria talking about the County Council Carers questionnaire Across Cumbria there are hundreds of carers who are looking after loved ones and Cumbria County Council wants to hear about their experiences. In particular, the council wants to hear about what support the carers themselves receive. There are five local carer’s organisations across Cumbria – Eden, Carlisle, Furness, South Lakeland and West Cumbria Carers who support carers of all ages by providing carers assessments, emergency help in a crisis and organising social events and activities. I went to catch up with Carlisle Carers to see why carers should fill out council’s survey.
