Are you looking after a friend or family member?
If so the Swindon Carers Centre is here to support you.
Swindon Carers centre (SCC) is an independent charity established to support and provide help to carers in Swindon.
Are you a carer?
If you are looking after an ill, frail, or disabled family member, partner, or friend, then you are a carer. The person you look after may be elderly, have a physical or mental health condition, a learning disability or a drug or alcohol dependency (diagnosed or undiagnosed).
People often do not view themselves as carers, and as a result can miss out on the various rights, benefits and support which may help them in their role.
SCC can support carers in a number of ways.
- Provide information
- Signpost to other relevant organisations
- Give one-to-one support, including assistance in accessing services
- Welfare and benefits advice
- Access to breaks and complementary therapies
- Training sessions and self-help groups
- Emergency card scheme
For more information or to discuss your caring role and initiate the registration process, here is how you can reach them.
