Current Projects – Older Carers Project

Current Work: Older Carers Project

Supporting carers over 55

Funded by Lincolnshire County Council through the Better Care Fund, the Older Carers Project supports Carers over 55 years of age, assisting them to plan for the future when they can no-longer care.

The project, which has been running since February 2015 has supported 92 Carers and their families who care for their son or daughter with a learning disability. The Carers were all referred to the project by Lincolnshire County Council. In addition, the project has delivered four Carer focused workshops across Lincolnshire to assist all carers in making decisions about the future. These workshops were attended by over 120 people.

The project supported Carers by talking one to one in their own home to help them work through their options, signposting support, assisting them in completing a Carers Assessment and Carers Emergency Card, and looking at Housing and Support options, Wills, Trusts and Power of Attorney. The main focus of the project is to put a Future Care Plan and a Contingency Plan in place.

The project was independently evaluated by the University of Lincoln. A copy of the evaluation report can be found here.
