The St Helens Carers Centre continues to provide support to unpaid carers and their families with staff working remotely to provide continuity of this service in the borough.
The service continues to offer information, advice, support and benefits help. It has been issuing downloadable proof of caring information for registered carers, in order to assist carers where they need to provide evidence of their unpaid caring role. It is providing invaluable practical and emotional support for many carers at this difficult time.
The service can be accessed by telephoning 01744 675 615 (if busy leave a message as staff are picking up these calls throughout the day). Alternatively Carers and their families can log on to www.sthelenscarers.org.uk and chat instantly to one of the workers through their online chat portal which also includes trained benefits workers. The service can also be contacted at email@example.com or messaging via their website which is monitored during 9-5pm. The Centre continues to offer full benefit checks and assistance with applications forms and immediate caring help and information.
St Helens Young Carers continue to offer support to Young Carers and their families.
