Shropshire Carers Support:

Shropshire Carers is a dedicated Carer Support team, within Shropshire Council, providing information, advice and support to adult family and unpaid carers of adults.

Our vision is to enable carers to live their best lives by providing timely and quality information and support.

We are not a time limited service and may be working with individual carers for a short time or for longer periods of time, or carers may dip in and out of our service depending on their individual needs.

The service offers Carers:

  • 1:1 support -we work with you to explore the options available to you as a Carer and support for you to follow your choices. This may mean referral to other organisations to provide the appropriate support.
  • Information and advice – personalised for you.
  • Support line – 01743 341995 – operating Mon-Fri – 9-00am till 5-00pm.
  • Signposting or referral to specialist advice and support – e.g. benefits advice, advocacy.
  • Regular check in and chats to check on your wellbeing
  • Assistance with planning ahead – the right information at the right time.
  • Peer support groups – virtual and in the community
  • Carers network – creating a County wide network for carers, peer groups and organisations who support carers.
  • Information and training workshops – an annual calendar of activities that you can book onto.
  • Events and activities
  • Carer Register – a means of sharing important information quickly with you by a method that suits you best. With enrolment to the register you will also receive a carer ID/emergency card, emergency plan and free 5-part email course delivered by Mobilise.
  • Carers Feedback mechanism, an opportunity for you to tell us about your experiences throughout all of Health and Social care, both what went well and what may need improving

Carers can self-refer, or referrals are made via statutory, voluntary and community sector organisations.
