Adult Carers Support
We are now again accepting referrals for our Adult Carers Service. We accept self referrals and referrals from professionals.
Adult Carers support is available to anyone over the age of 18 living in the Eastleigh Borough who is an unpaid carer for a family member or friend. At a time when a recent diagnosis can seem daunting and unsettling, we can help you to understand the services, benefits, advice and support available to you and your family.
The Adult Carers team is able to offer the following:
- Information and Signposting
- Social Opportunities
- IT and form filling support
- Emotional support
- A Carers journal
- Exclusive counselling rates
Naomi Stock Our Carers Development Worker is available Mon to Thursday between 9am-5pm and 9am to 2pm on Fridays. Telephone number 02380 902404 and email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can download our referral form here: Adult-Carers-Referral-Form-2017.docx
As the project gets busier it will be looking for volunteers to help in several ways including admin, and support at events. For more information please contact Naomi Stock on 023 8090 2404 or email@example.com.
We are still running the computer cafe and the coffee morning – details of which can be found below.
You can also find the latest Carers Catch Up newsletter here.
Information and Signposting
We can provide help at any point during the Carer’s journey with signposting to specialist organisations, referring to help within One Community or researching information on the Carers behalf.
Regular Coffee Morning
Every other Tuesday* 10am – 12pm Wells Place
We recognise the need to meet with others in the same situation. Carers can enjoy a free tea or coffee whilst chatting or listening to others, sharing tips and generally relieving the feeling of isolation which is so common with caring.
*See the latest newsletter for dates
Every Friday 10am – 12pm Chandlers Ford Library
Our volunteers are on hand at the library to help Carers grasp the basics of I.T. No need to book, just drop in and get started.
If you care for someone but are aged between 8 and 18, see Young Carers.
