Information for Carers

Are You a Carer?

Are you a carer or cared for? Do you care for someone who could not manage without you or are you someone that is cared for?

It is important that carers stay as fit and healthy as possible. We want to help carers however we can only do this if you let us know you are a carer and register yourself as a carer using the Carer Registration Form (see below).

Under NHS regulations all GPs are required to compile a register of carers. This identifies carers and their needs so that support can be offered when needed if you care for a relative, friend or neighbour who is dependent on that help. The person being cared for may be handicapped, have a debilitating physical or mental illness or be in frail health and can be any age.

Carers Liaison Forum

West Glamorgan has a wonderful Carer's Liaison Forum in which ideas, suggestions and feedback are incorporated into a plan to improve the health and wellbeing of carers and the people they care for.

In 2021 the forum has helped introduce improvements to the support network and services for carers all over West Glamorgan, including:

  • Young Carers Grant
  • Carers Hardship Grant
  • Carer ID Cards
  • Legal Surgeries

And many more.

If you would like to get involved or would like more information, please contact the team on 01639 631 246, send an email to carers@remove-this.nptcvs.org.uk  or download their Carer's Liaison Forum roadmap and Carer's Liaison Forum summary to get caught up on their plans for the future.
