Carers Information


Please let us know if you are a carer or have a carer, we will add it to your records.

We can use this information to help you get the most from using our surgery and it's helpful for our clinicians to know when treating you. The following support is also available to you:


If you are a carer and would like support you can contact  Voluntary Action South Leicestershire (VASL) on  01858 433232, or by emailing:  admin@vasl.org.uk  or their website http://vasl.org.uk/our-projects/support-for-carers

 

The service aims to inform and support carers in all communities throughout Leicestershire, to improve carers’ quality of life, promote their health and well-being and to encourage them to make real choices about their lives.

 

The service includes:

 

  • a dedicated telephone advice line (calls charged at local rates) so carers can talk to experienced professionals in confidence about any aspect of being a carer,
  • carers’ support groups around the county,
  • a telephone befriending service specifically for carers, a website full of news and information, a quarterly newsletter and an online directory of local services for carers.

Here is a link to Carers activities in NW Leics

If carers’ needs can’t be met through this service then they have the right to an assessment which will determine eligibility for a carers personal budget which they could use in a number of ways, including respite provision.
