We can provide:

  • Information and advice about all issues affecting carers, including benefits, breaks, respite and support services, carer assessment procedures, aids and adaptations
  • Emotional support for carers to talk through their concerns, thus helping to alleviate isolation and stress.

  • Advocacy – at tribunals, assessments, case reviews, assistance to access funds and services, or whenever a carer needs a friend or supporter
  • Practical help – befriending, breaks, benefits advice
  • Training and education – in skills often needed by carers, such as moving and handling, first aid, from personal development to stress reduction through relaxation and counselling.
  • Fun – time out, breaks, the opportunity to enjoy a social life, taking into account carers special needs and sense of isolation

Partnership Projects

Carers Therapeutic Care (The British Red Cross)

The British Red Cross Therapeutic Care for Carers is designed to help relieve the stress of caring. The treatment provided is a gentle neck and shoulder massage, hand and forearm treatment and a manicure. These sessions are offered in both the south and the north of the borough. A light lunch is provided and staff from Hillingdon Carers are present to give information and emotional support if needed.

Carers Arts (LBH Arts Service)

This is an Arts for Carers service that offers carers the opportunity to access structured arts-based courses which allows them to take a short break from their caring responsibilities. They range from all sorts of themes from floristry, creative crafts and music appreciation. The project is supported by the London Borough of Hillingdon Arts Service.
These courses are only available through Hillingdon Carers newsletter

Counselling

Counselling is offered to carers that feel they are under a lot of stress and need to talk to someone who is not within the family environment. The Counselling sessions usually last 50 minutes and take place regularly in a private and confidential setting. The overall length of time spent in counselling depends on the concerns and issues of the carer.
Please note there is a waiting list, but we can signpost carers to an alternative counselling service.
