Support for Carers during COVID-19

Support for Carers during COVID-19

The current pandemic has been a challenging time for everyone. However, as a carer it is possible that an already challenging role has become that much harder – whether through trying to navigate how support organisations are currently operating to keep in line with social distancing, restrictions on having access to needed supplies due to shielding, or reduced ability to take a well-deserved break and get some air.

The below pages provide information on how to look after yourself, those you care for, and how to access support during this time.

Carers Network have put together a page specifically regarding the support locally available, and Government guidance and support. This is a great page full of really helpful information on a range of practical, financial and emotional support options.

Carers UK have also put together a helpful page, with helpful information on current guidance.

Discounts for carers also provides opportunities to find savings on a range of goods and facilities that might be increasing financial pressure in this current climate.
