Carers Week 2019: 10th - 16th June
This year Carers Week 2019 will focus on 'Getting Carers Connected'. Dudley Carers Hub and other carer organisations will be running a range of information sessions, activities and events for carers. View our programme for details.
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.
In Summer 2018 we launched Dudley Carers Hub and Wellbeing Service for carers of all ages.
Located at Queens Cross Network, Dudley, the hub offers 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 are therefore unaware of the support available to them. We aim to empower carers to make informed choices and provide specialist advice and support including:
Pop in and see us at the hub Mon-Fri 9.30am - 3.00pm, or call to book an appointment outside of these times.
As a carer it is important that you look after your own health and wellbeing
Use Dudley's free access code DGTL3392 to register and find the information that you need, including an e-learning course, a care and support app, guides and lots of information on local resources.
From fish and chips on a relaxing cruise down our canal network to informative sessions on how to 'get connected' to technologies and services to help make your caring role easier, there is something for everyone.
