Caring for a family member, friend, or neighbour who could not manage without your help?
At West Cumbria Carers we have been supporting people who care for nearly 25 years.
We’ve supported people like 15 year old Scott, who cares for his Mum, Linda, who has MS. We’ve worked with Scott’s school to get him extra support, to stop him falling too far behind.
We’ve supported people like 54 year old Sally, who cares for her elderly father, John, who has dementia. We’ve provided Sally with a place on a relaxation course to help her reduce the stress she was feeling that was harming her health. We’ve helped Sally access support from Adult Social Care, and to apply for new benefits.
We’ve supported people like 9 year old Kate, who helps look after her autistic younger brother. We’ve taken Kate on trips with other young carers, to give her a fun break away.
