Support for adult carers

We have commissioned the Sheffield Carers Centre. This is a local independent charity that supports adults who are providing unpaid care to someone else in Sheffield.

The Carers Centre have trained staff who understand the pressures of caring. They can help with any aspect of being a carer and offer the following services:

  • a dedicated Carer Advice Line, 0114 272 8362, which there is an interpretation service for 
  • information and resources covering over 20 topics on the Carers Centre website
  • Time for a Break Grant, which offers short breaks from caring or activities for carers
  • discounts on services, products and activities from local and national businesses with Carer Card
  • Legal Advice Clinic, which is a monthly, free 30-minute advice session
  • Community Connect telephone support, which connects carers and reduces social isolation
  • emergency planning for times when carers ar unable to care
  • carer’s assessments that focuses on the impact caring is having on you, plus any support you may need in your caring role
  • Carer Café and support groups with other carers, held every Friday across Sheffield
  • carer activities and carer workshops to help carers share experiences and learn new skills

Carer's Needs Assessments

The Carers Centre is also responsible for assessing  how your caring situation is impacting your life, and the measures that could be taken to lessen the effect.
