For many carers, your first contact with Sheffield Carers Centre will be through our our Carers Advisor team.
The service is staffed by trained professionals who understand the pressures of caring and can help you with any aspect of your caring role. They can give you lots of the information you need as a carer, for example about:
- understanding how the social care system works
- your rights as a carer
- respite services, and taking a break from caring
- benefits and other financial matters and lots more.
You can also contact the service to talk about your caring role – the person listening will understand how you are feeling.
To contact the service, please call:
0114 272 8362
9am – 6pm any weekday (answerphone service outside these hours)
Or you can send an email to email@example.com
If appropriate, our staff will suggest that you come into the office for a face-to-face meeting at our office at Concept House.
Our staff will need to ask you for some details of your caring situation, but you can be assured that the service is completely confidential.
The person you speak to will also ask if we can add you to our Carers Register (if you are not already on it) so that you will receive our regular Newsletters and other relevant information.
