Support for carers

For many people, caring is a rewarding and positive experience, but for others, caring without the right help and support can feel overwhelming. For some people, caring can trigger feelings of loneliness and frustration and many often find their physical and emotional health, work or finances are affected. Carers do not have to wait until they are struggling or there is a crisis before they ask for support.

You can contact the Lincolnshire Carers Service to talk to someone about your caring role and we will listen and provide you with support. We can help you with:

  • information, advice, and guidance specific to you as a carer
  • the opportunity to talk in detail about your caring role (a carer’s assessment)
  • support your conversations with people and services such as GPs, social care and hospitals
  • practical training to help you in your caring role
  • eligibility for benefits and financial support
  • opportunities to access support groups and activities so you can meet others in a similar situation to yourself
  • regular contact by telephone, Carers FIRST website, monthly e-bulletins and “What’s On” guides containing details of groups supported by Carers FIRST
  • Carer’s Emergency Response Plan, which is a plan that you are supported to create and which provides detailed instructions for others to follow in an emergency situation
  • getting the balance right in your life again
  • support to access a break or help around the home, depending on eligibility this may be funded through a carer’s personal budget
