Unpaid carers can now register for a vaccine appointment
People who provide vital face-to-face care and support for others who haven’t already been given an appointment are now being invited to self-register for the COVID-19 vaccine.
That care could be due to old age, physical or mental illness, disability or for an addiction.
The type of care could be anything from the practicalities of domestic tasks such as regularly helping with the shopping, picking up prescriptions or preparing meals, to personal care such as helping them to wash and dress.
It could also be emotional support to someone such as a partner, friend or family member with a long-term health condition.
Your Carers Centre is still open
All of our staff are currently working from home. They are continuing to provide help and support to unpaid carers during this difficult time.
