Bury Carers Hub

Bury Carers’ Hub provides a single point of access for all adult Carers (18+) supporting another adult living in Bury. The Hub exists to ensure that Carers have access to information, advice, and a wide range of support services.

 

These support services are designed to help Carers continue in their caring role for as long as they choose and to reduce the impact the caring role can have on a Carer’s own health and wellbeing.

 

Once you get in touch with us, we can arrange for a dedicated Carers Information and Support Officer to get in touch with you, who will get to know you and gain an understanding of your needs as a Carer. They will work with you to provide support to meet your individual needs.

 

This could include:

  • Specialist 1-2-1 and group support
  • Support to take breaks from caring, including befriending and peer support
  • Newsletters twice a year detailing local groups, activities, and training
  • Online Carers Community Network
  • A 24/7 Volunteer manned Carers Help and Talk (CHAT) Line
  • Support to access community and Health and Wellbeing services
  • Support for former Carers
  • Volunteering opportunities as ‘Friends of Bury Carers’, including volunteering for the CHAT Line
  • Carers Awareness Briefings for professionals
