Carers' Support Service

In Summer 2018 the North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group will be required to re-tender for our North East Lincolnshire Carers’ Support Service (currently being delivered at 1 Town Hall Square, Grimsby).

The Carers’ Support Service is our main support service for carers, providing a range of services as follows:

  • Befriending
  • Counselling
  • Information & Advice
  • Support groups
  • Signposting/referral
  • Advocacy
  • Holistic therapies
  • Social activities/ outings
  • Training/education
  • End of life support
  • Emotional/practical support
  • Specialist benefits/financial advice

As a part of this process, we are seeking your views either as carers, staff members working with carers or as members of the wider community.

We want to know what you think about:

  • The current carers support services being delivered at the NEL Carers’ Support Service, 1 Town Hall Square, Grimsby.
  • What a carers’ support service should look like, in terms of the services/support offered i.e. is the above list right?
  • Any gaps in the carers support services provided for carers locally
  • Any other thoughts you have on how services for carers should be set up/ delivered/ monitored

If you are a Carer, you can complete the carers’ questionnaire online using the following link to give your views: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/B5RNMDF

If you are a staff member working with carers, you can complete the professionals’ questionnaire online using the link:  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GZ78RQS
