A carer looks after a loved one who needs help with daily living. They don't do this as a paid job. It is important to remember that carers have rights too, including young carers. These pages list links to where you can get lots of information and advice:
- Young Carers
- Power of Attorney and Court of Protection
- Carers Advocacy: Frequently Asked Questions
- Carers' Rights
The Brain Charity delivers the Carers Advocacy service for residents who live within the boundaries of Liverpool City Council.
- About our Carers Advocacy service at our centre in Liverpool
- We can also provide counselling, and specialist legal advice.
- Our Music Therapy Workshops for People with Dementia can also benefit their carers in many ways.
- The library at The Brain Charity's centre includes many resources for carers, including
The Carer's Handbook: Essential Information and Support for All Those in a Caring Role.
Thanks to generous funding from BBC Children in Need, The Brain Charity will be providing dance and art workshops for children and young people, with Physiotherapy Through Dance and Occupational Therapy Through Art.
Do you have time to complete our short online survey ? Your responses to the questions in this survey will help to shape the project to make sure we are offering the best service possible. If you are a parent or carer please give the information about the child or young person in your care.
