All Carers over the age of 18 and caring for an adult have
the legal right to a Carers Assessment.
A Carers Assessment is an opportunity to create a space to talk about you. It is about helping you identify what you need to support your caring role.
During the Assessment, you will be able to discuss your caring role and paint a picture of how it affects different areas of your life. The aim is to help you access the support you need – this could be practical, emotional and/or financial e.g. help towards funding a break from your caring role, support getting back into work and/or access to counselling services.
In Camden, if the person you care for is already working with a social worker, you can ask them to do a Carers Assessment with you. If there isn’t a social worker, or would prefer someone else to do the Assessment with you, Camden Carers Service is very happy to help you.
Please get in touch on 020 7428 8950 or [email protected] if you would like more information on Carers Assessments.
