Do you provide care or support to a parent, child, partner, relative, neighbour or friend who has an illness, disability, addiction or is older and frail? If the answer is yes, then you are a carer. There's lot of support available from Dudley Carers Hub.
Dudley Carers Hub
Dudley Carers Hub and Wellbeing Service, run by Dudley Council, supports unpaid carers of all ages.
We offer information, advice and a range of support to anyone caring for a family member or friend. Many people who provide care often do not recognise themselves as a carer, and aren't aware of the support available to them. We aim to empower carers to make informed choices and provide specialist advice and support including:
- Information on financial and legal rights
- Advice on respite services
- Advice on accessing social care and health and wellbeing services
- Emotional support
- A specialist Dudley Young Carers Service
- Support with getting out and about, including social groups and carers groups
- Help with arranging a carers assessment
- Specialist training courses for carers
There are two hubs located at Queens Cross Network in Dudley and Brett Young Centre in Halesowen. Call us for more information, or to book an appointment with us on 01384 818723 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are open 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday. If you need support outside these hours you should call Dudley's adult social care emergency duty team on 0300 555 8574, 5pm - 9am Monday to Sunday, including Bank Holidays.
Information to help young carers and young adult carers (aged under 25) is also now available. The government guidance is designed to help young carers understand the caring changes they need to make and signposts assistance available during the pandemic.
As a carer it is important that you look after your own health and wellbeing
