Hambleton & Richmondshire Carers Centre

"People looking after others do not always recognise themselves as carers"

 

The person you look after might be your friend, partner or relative

 

If this sounds like you, we can help……….

We offer:

Information and advice

Confidential one to one support

Help to navigate the social care and health systems.

Signposting or referral to specialist help

Support with Carers Assessments

and access to a Carers Emergency Card.

We also provide opportunities to meet other Carers through

our groups, events and projects.

We support carers throughout Richmondshire and Hambleton, providing information over the phone or, more usually, meeting carers in their homes or another place of their choosing.

Volunteers needed

The Carers Centre is always looking for volunteers to help promote the work that we do. Volunteers do not know all the answers to carers questions but are good listeners and usually have used our service themselves. We simply need volunteers, particularly in more rural communities, who can explain the types of services we offer.

We have vacancies for three types of volunteer role and all can be adapted to fit with our volunteers’ needs:

Volunteers to top up our leaflets and ensure current posters are displayed in community venues such as village hall and/or library notice boards, GP surgeries, pharmacies etc. (We can provide you with named contacts in surgeries and    pharmacies). Approximately twice per year.

Volunteers to man  pop-up information points in  community venues for between 1 & 3 days during Carers Week in June.

Volunteers  to man pop-up information points at specific community locations/events, such as GP vaccination clinics, farmers markets or local fund raising events such as church or community coffee mornings. Approximately 2 or 3 per year, in your own locality.

If you would like  further information contact  Fiona  on 01609 780872 or email fiona.kaley@hrcarers.org.uk
