How can Carers Carers SA Ltd help?

We are a registered charity that provides:

Information

By having access to the right information, carers are able to make a decision about how services should be provided, if and when they are needed.

Support

Caring for someone at home can be an isolating and demanding experience, both physically and emotionally. Carers sometimes need support to enable them to continue in their role and also when they are no longer able to continue caring at home.

Advice

Many Carers and their families will be entitled to claim benefits, we can offer Carers a comprehensive welfare benefits advice service.

Advocacy

At times Carers may feel unable to voice their concerns and opinions to those responsible for providing care services, therefore we can provide support with this.

Social activities

Caring for someone over a period of time can sometimes mean losing touch with family and friends, leaving a feeling of isolation and a loss of confidence. Other Carers and former Carers understand these problems and therefore a range of social activities and outings are arranged on a regular basis enabling Carers to meet socially

Our family services are focused on the needs of parents or carers of children with additional needs. This may include carers of children with:

  • a physical disability
  • a problem with sight, hearing or speech
  • learning difficulties
  • emotional or behavioural problems
  • serious long term illness
