Help for carers

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.

Where to find help

How we can help

The pledge

The Council is committed to supporting carers and can offer help and support to you. We aim to see carers as partners in care with expert knowledge, experience and understanding of the person they care for:

Carers Strategy

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

We also 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.

Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust

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