Help for carers

Am I a carer?

If you look after a relative, friend or neighbour, providing essential support to someone unable to do everything for themselves then you are a carer. The Council is committed to supporting carers and can offer help and support to you. 

Support is also available locally through the Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust in Northwich.

Carer's assessment

We carry out carer's assessments to find out the best ways to help you cope as a carer, and help you in your caring role. Contact the Access team for information or to arrange an assessment

The 2012-15 Cheshire West and Chester Carers Strategy

The 2012-15 Cheshire West and Chester Carers Strategy (PDF, 1294KB) has been developed in partnership with carers, the Clinical Commissioning groups and local carer focused voluntary sector organisations.

The Pledge

We aim to see carers as partners in care with expert knowledge, experience and understanding of the person they care for.

We are proud to present this to the citizens of Cheshire West and Chester and look forward to building on this excellent foundation.
