Advice for carers
As well as contacting your local church and GP surgery to find out what support and advice they have to offer to carers, try some of the suggestions given below.
Surrey County Council has joined forces with Carers UK to put together a ‘Digital Resource for Carers’ to give carers easy access to a range of information, help and support – available through your computer, tablet or smartphone.
It includes resilience training for carers; access to the ‘Jointly’ care coordination app; guides for new carers, carers’ rights and nutrition; plus a range of other information and support.
It is free to join – all you have to do is go to www.carersdigital.org click on ‘create new account’ with your email address and a password, and enter the code DGTL3562
