We were visited by Ann Hamp from Derbyshire Carers Association at our last team meeting. Ann came to tell us all about the work that Derbyshire Carers do and the support they offer.
Any carers living in Derby City can have their needs assessed, such as exploring what support they are entitled to. This could include access to support groups, training, community events, and access to personal budgets. Carers can arrange to meet Derbyshire Carers at their offices or, in some instances, arrange a home visit.?Derbyshire Carers also have a legal clinic and a financial advisor where carers can make appointments with them without incurring any charges.
We understand the important link between carers’ roles and mental health, so we were pleased to hear they include our leaflet in their information packs!
Thanks to Ann for your visit!
