New service and support for Carers across Elmbridge
Services to support Carers in Surrey are changing. From 1 April 2017, 'Action for Carers Surrey' will provide a county-wide service for Carers. This means that most of the ten Carer Support Schemes - including Carers Support Elmbridge - will close their offices at the end of March.
ACS will offer Carers a flexible range of support including:
- Telephone support and advice
- Local Carers meetings
- Face-to-face meetings, where needed
- Support groups and workshops.
In addition, there will also be Carer Advisors in the county's five acute hospitals (East Surrey, Epsom, Royal Surrey County in Guildford, Frimley Park and St Peters in Chertsey).
If you are a parent, partner, relative, neighbour or friend providing help to someone with a long-term illness or disability, then you are a Carer. To access help and support, here are the contact details for 'Action for Carers Surrey':
Telephone: 0303 040 1234*
SMS: 07714 075993
Carer Support Elmbridge is a charity supporting unpaid carers, who may care for a relative, friend or neighbour. It is completely independent of the statutory agencies.
There are three Carer Support Advisers. They are able to offer advocacy, general information, help in obtaining services, home visits, support groups, a listening ear and training opportunities.
Our three Carer Support Advisers are Yvonne Clarke, Liz Hopkins and our Parent Carer Adviser – Anne Hubble.
