Carers Support Officers can provide one-to-one support to individual carers. This includes emotional support, information, advice and advocacy. We work with you to explore the options that are available to you as a carer.
We can help with form filling, applying for specific benefits such as Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance and Carers Allowance and making applications to charitable trusts for grants. We can also support carers at formal meetings with health and social care professionals.
We can arrange one-to-one appointments at our office in Fishponds, through drop-ins, and at your GP practice. In some cases we can offer a home visit.
