(If you would like the Zoom meeting links in the above bulletin to be active then please open in this new window).
On page 4 of the Bulletin you will see that we have a new venue in NANTWICH for COFFEE AND CHAT, every 4th Wednesday of the month, 10:30 – 12:30 in the cafe at Mill House on Queens Drive, Nantwich, CW5 5BX……
……a chance for a face-to-face informal catch up with other carers and Cheshire East Carers Hub staff. This is open to all.
Please note: “If you would like to attend any of the coffee and chats please let us know in advance. We need to ensure we arrange enough places and that we are adhering to Covid-19 government guidelines (if applicable) and be able to get in touch with you if arrangements have to change.”
The Hub exists to ensure that Carers of all ages have access to information, advice and a wide range of support services. These support services are designed to help Carers continue in their caring role for as long as they choose and to reduce the impact the caring role can have on a Carers own health and wellbeing.
Support can include:
Anyone who thinks they are a carer can register with the Carers Hub by calling 0300 303 0208, emailing email@example.com or by visiting cheshireeastcarershub.co.uk.
Our Young Carers Practitioners are Cara and Cathryn.

Audlem Carers Support Group is open to anyone who provides care support to family members, friends or neighbours.
Coffee Mornings are currently held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 10am to 12 noon in the Thornton Room in Audlem Public Hall Annexe.
This is a ‘drop-in’ arrangement where carers on our register can enjoy coffee, chat, advice and friendly confidential mutual support.
We also hold a Zoom meeting for Carers on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month between 10am and 12 noon. Any of our registered carers can participate, and it is particularly useful for carers who are unable to attend ‘live’ meetings for whatever reason. It’s a ‘bring your own coffee/tea’ occasion as we haven’t discovered how to transmit refreshments via the internet. Yet.

Age UK also has a useful 12-point Checklist for Carers.
Carers UK website is a fantastic, comprehensive resource with all the information you might need.
“This is a simple tool for carers who are new to the maze of benefits and entitlements. Fill in your details, spend a couple of minutes answering questions and we’ll guide you to the information you need. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, give us a call – we’re here to help.”
Looking After Someone is our guide for anyone caring for family or friends. The guide outlines your rights as a carer and gives an overview of the practical and financial support available.
We provide information, advice and support to unpaid carers.
A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.
Carers may even be juggling paid work with their unpaid caring responsibilities at home. The term carer should not be confused with a care worker, or care assistant, who receives payment for looking after someone.
Carers have different needs and Cheshire & Warrington Carers Trust can assist you in information regarding health issues, entitlements, mobility, grants for holidays, equipment and support. We also offer a wide range of activities, training and events for Carers throughout the year across Cheshire.
