Mental health carer support services

Offering information and advice to carers of people with mental health needs. 

We offer information and advice to carers of any age, who support people with mental health needs. The support we offer may include support access to respite, housing and finance.

About our mental health carers' support model

There are three main services that carers can access:

  1. Universal information provides high quality information for carers, including signposting to other organisations and charities

  2. One-to-one support. Carers can access up to 12 one-to-one support sessions where a tailored support plan is provided. Carers will work towards positive outcomes for them and the person(s) they provide care for. Once the 12 sessions are completed, support workers will encourage further development through peer support groups to ensure ongoing development continues

  3. Peer support groups enable carers to develop independent peer groups within the community. The groups work with other carers to influence policy and services as well as provide a social and supportive network for carers

Our person-centred approach is designed to enable independence and allows carers to move through intensive support, floating support, training and employment.

Our referral process

Carers can be referred to the service through agencies, by someone who thinks they need support or by calling us directly on 0300 304 5530.
