Developed for Carers Week 2021, these resources for GPs and those working within primary healthcare settings aim to identify older carers at key points of contact. Although these resources were developed specifically for carers week, they can be used at any time to help carers, particularly older carers, to identify themselves to primary care professionals.
Nod yr adnoddau hyn ar gyfer meddygon teulu a’r rheini sy’n gweithio mewn lleoliadau gofal iechyd sylfaenol, a ddatblygwyd ar gyfer Wythnos Gofalwyr 2021, yw nodi gofalwyr hŷn yn ystod pwyntiau cyswllt allweddol. Er i’r adnoddau hyn gael eu datblygu’n benodol ar gyfer wythnos gofalwyr, gellir eu defnyddio ar unrhyw adeg i helpu gofalwyr, yn enwedig gofalwyr hŷn, i roi gwybod i weithwyr gofal sylfaenol proffesiynol eu bod nhw’n ofalwyr.
Ariannwyd Ymddiriedolaeth Gofalwyr Cymru gan Lywodraeth Cymru i ddatblygu adnoddau i gefnogi adnabod, cyrhaeddiad a llesiant disgyblion a chanddynt gyfrifoldebau gofalu.
Carers Trust Wales was funded by Welsh Government to develop resources to support the identification, attainment, and well-being of pupils with caring responsibilities.
Working for Carers is led by Carers Trust and delivered by its network of partners (local carer organisations) across London. Working for Carers is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund. The first phase of the project ran from October 2016 and September 2019 and was evaluated by Ecorys.
A Wales-specific, user-friendly resource, this toolkit was developed in partnership with Learning and Work Institute to increase awareness of student carers and their specific needs, promote existing good practice from colleges and carers services and offering expert recommendations.
This toolkit provides essential tools, templates and guidance for Initial Teacher Education (ITE) providers who already include young carers as a key topic within their training programmes and ITE providers who are developing their training content regarding young carers.
There are an estimated 700,000 young carers in the UK; people who are under 18 who help look after someone in their family, or a friend, who are ill, disabled or misuse drugs or alcohol. The report highlights recommendations based on discussions with young carers, sector leaders and young carers services in the Carers Trust network.
We sent a Freedom of Information request to all councils in England with responsibility for social care asking them whether or not they are currently charging carers for support or are considering introducing charges in the next year.
This toolkit is targeted at commissioners of health and social care in England and aims to highlight the needs of carers aged over 60 and to show tried and tested ways they can be supported.
