St Just Carers Forum

Posted on: 22nd July 2017

St Just Carers Forum, part of the Kernow Carers Forum has spread to the St Just area for all those unpaid carers out there.

The meetings are a free service for anyone who helps look after a family member, friend or neighbour to give them an opportunity to discuss the issues they face and have their voices heard in a welcoming and confidential environment, with others facing similar problems.  Many people are unaware of the help they can get because they don’t recognise themselves as carers as they look after a loved one or friend.  Staff from Kernow Carers Service will be at the meetings, and will be able to give help and advice to carers, including making referrals to Carer Support Workers who work directly with individual carers to give them help and advice about a variety of things, including accessing benefits and services.  Where issues can’t be resolved at the meeting or by a Carer Support Worker, we attend various other Groups such as the Carers Partnership Board and HealthWatch where carers concerns can be raised.
