Every-One is pleased to be working in partnership with the County Carers' Group

The County Carers' Group is a grant funded, none profit making voluntary organisation, run by carers for carers of people with learning disabilities or associated conditions.   

The Vision

It is the shared vision of the group that carers for people with learning disabilities have confidence that those they care for have easy and timely access to appropriate services which are of high quality which meet individual needs and that carers needs are met and their views and caring expertise are valued.

The Mission

County Carer’s mission is to improve the life of carers and those they care for, working towards the group’s vision, through effective communication and partnership working.  Carer support is at the heart of what we do.  

What does County Carers Do?

Identifying and representing carers’ needs:
Members of the committee have good representation on the Executive of the Learning Disability Partnership Board and work cooperatively with other key stakeholders in the quest to bring about improvements and in an attempt to safeguard services.  
Providing information:
The main vehicles for providing information have been the provision of “information events” which County Carers hold around the county and the County Carers publications.  We also work cooperatively with other relevant organisation to host consultation and other events.
Providing a friendly listening ear:
Committee members are happy to provide contact details for an informal chat should you wish.  This has been an ongoing service which has proved to be very useful for many of our members.  If we can’t help directly, we can often direct you to someone who can.
Supporting local carers groups:
The committee includes representatives from local carer groups around the county.  Some financial support may be available to help groups to function or to set up new groups where there is need.  Local groups are often better able to focus on local issues, but membership to the wider County Carers Group provides strength in numbers when it comes to getting our voice heard.
Signposting relevant services:
Keeping up-to-date with developments and initiatives and maintaining appropriate networks enables us to provide appropriate signposting to services and contacts.  If we haven’t got the answer we usually know someone who has!


County Carers runs the annual I.C.E. Event. More details can be found here.

Membership

Membership is open to all unpaid carers of people with learning disabilities or related conditions.  As a member you will be included on our mailing list and receive publications and notification of information events.  You will not be asked to fund raise or get involved in anything you do not wish to.  We will not try and sell you anything nor pass on your details to any third party.
